you NEVER know what you will find on a curb. This ‘free desk’ couldn’t be better for me if i designed it: solid wood (well laminated wood) with 1 drawer and welded steel legs. it has a few dings and one hole in the top, i suspect they tried to drill from beneath or something. But to me it’s super nifty deluxe. I can hide a world of crap underneath. And if i get sick of it, I can attach the legs to a piece of laminated MDF i have been saving (looking for the same kind of legs.)
YES my house looks like mardi gras, I used the shreds from the paper shredder for kitten litter and they like to play with it . . . a LOT.
