This ombre desk organizer is a cool idea for everyone! Prepare a wooden plank (3⁄4-inch thick), a pencil, a ruler, a saw, a wood chisel, a hammer, sanding paper, wood glue, bar clamps, paint, varnish and a drill.

Starting at the edge of the right side, center and draw a smaller rectangle that is 3 inches long by 3⁄4 inches wide. Keep reading the tutorial at bobvila.com.
