What is the Instagram Builder’s Challenge (IGBC)?

Each year, the IGBC challenges the maker community on Instagram to add their own personal flavor to the same woodworking plan. The winner gets an awesome prize package and ultimate bragging rights!

This year, I am so excited to announce that my DIY Industrial Desk Plans were put to the challenge! And now that the challenge is over, I’m sharing the plans for free!

    What lumber did you use for the countertop?

    • Sam

      The budget I set for this build includes strictly pine material & plywood. But, you can use whatever you’d like!

  • Fred Waller

    Besides plywood can you suggest to me more one or two types of lumber that I could use for the countertop?
