Assuming the 1x2’s are actually 3/4” thick, and the 2x2’s are actually 1.5” thick, the 44” dimension is wrong. It needs to be 44.5”. I have found this out the hard way. Still a great project, and nothing a trip to the hardware store can’t fix...

Step 5 is incorrect in two ways: 1. The 44" apron sides don't need pocket holes. 2. The 21.5" apron sides need pocket holes that are 3/4" (not 1 1/2")
Other than that, this plan was easy to follow and looks great so far (i'm not finished)

Great desk plan. I really like the simplicity of the design, and the ability to customize it to your tastes. For example, I used a harder wood (birch) for the desktop, but cheaper pine for the rest.
Also, as mentioned earlier, there are two mistakes in number 5. The correct instructions should be:
Cut 2- 21 1/2" 1x2's. Drill 3/4" pocket holes on each end of boards. Cut 2- 44" 1x2's. Attach the boards together to create a frame, using 1 1/4" pocket hole screws.

Great piece, directions and pics are clear. Only problem is step 5 the short boards should have the pocket holes, easy fix. Project design is easy to modify to your needs. Great use of scrap wood from other projects, I just ripped some left over 2x4s and 1x material for the majority and made my top from 1x6s. Easy build only about a day and that's with finishing. My wife loves it and it only cost me some screws, scrap wood and time.
