Desk Plans

With all the desk plans available, any beginner to expert woodworker can easily build just the right desk. The right desk can make it easy to stay organized and bring beauty to a home office or child’s room. If you’re unhappy with your current desk or want a new one, why not build your own instead. Building a desk is a fun, challenging and practical woodworking project. By building your own desk, you can make one that’s exactly what you need.

Pick a Style

There are many different desk styles. When you’re looking for desk plans, it’s hard not to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of choices! Computer desks have become the most popular over the past 10 years. Maybe you’d like a classic roll top desk or how about a computer desk with a roll top? A pedestal desk is a classical design that doesn't take up a lot of floor space. Decide what style of desk you’d like to narrow your list.

Pick a Room

In which room will your new desk be placed? A kitchen desk is a great place to keep recipes or pay bills. Kid’s desks are also popular and fun to make. Children love drawers and cubbyholes, and a child’s desk can be an excellent way to teach children organizational skills. There are even hanging wall desks that are perfect for those tight spaces in a hallway or in the kitchen. An office desk can be elaborate and large or sleek and efficient. Be sure to measure the area where you’ll be putting your finished desk to ensure it’s not too big or too small.
