I have one of those fake wood desks made with wood chips and covered with veneer. It was my son's computer desk, but didn't stand up very well to the torture he put it through. To be honest I'm not really sure how it is still standing.
I've decided to turn one of the pieces that fell off into a dry erase board for the garage, It is about 18" x 24". I forgot to take a before picture of the piece I am working on, but I have a second similar piece that I will take a photo of to show you, then I will share the stages I did to work change it into what I wanted.
