How to build the Yori Gyomu Ladder Desk (Mini) within 15 minutes

It’s here! I’ve been itching to assemble my new Gyomu Ladder Desk (Mini) from Yori ever since it arrived last week, but I only had enough time to do so last Saturday so I made a quick video to document whether it’s easy to build or not. Surprisingly, the 15-minute time limit that Yori printed on its box is possible – that’s if you’ll concentrate on assembling furniture and keep your pets away from you!

This desk can be used as a study or work table, a computer table, a table for your collectibles, a table and book shelf in one, and so on! It’s spacious enough to fit all my important items in one place so I instantly fell in love with the design.

Since I nearly accomplished the 15-minute assembly challenge, here’s a quick explanation of what you’ll need to do in order to assemble your Yori table with ease and without committing the same mistakes that I did. It’s been a while since I last assembled something this big so consider this as a small achievement:

You only need to follow six simple steps and then you’re done! The Gyomu Ladder Desk (Mini) costs Php 2,495 but there’s a taller version within the Php 3,000 price point.
