Easy to Build Desk for Home Office or Homeschool | Free Woodworking Plans

My wife and daughter needed an upgrade from their cheap Ikea desk, so I made this easy to build desk that’s perfect for a home office or the homeschooling family! It has easy access to a hidden power strip, plenty of desk space, and a handful of drawers to keep you organized.

    ugh, I truly don’t know how anyone can work on a. 24" desk. Mine is 30" deep and that’s… eh… just enough.

  2. GARY NICOLETTI on July 23, 2023 at 3:08 pm

    WOW! Ambrosia Maple is a great choice for the top.
    Although you did not need to use a track saw to break down the plywood first to create the drawer boxes, what track saw do you own? The Kreg ACS2000 Adaptive Cutting System Saw Guide Track Kit since they sponsee you?
    Would you recommend it?

  3. Sakib Choudhury on July 23, 2023 at 3:08 pm

    That was not easy to make I don’t know what you’re talkin about

  4. Timothy Creasy on July 23, 2023 at 3:09 pm

    That Maple top is beautiful. Love the lines running through the grain. Thanks for sharing Mr Mike

    Awesome build, it looks so good!!!

  6. Chris Hornberger on July 23, 2023 at 3:20 pm

    Which drawer slides are those? I don’t recognize the blue handle on the front clip section.

  7. Rob Hoglund on July 23, 2023 at 3:22 pm

    So now you have an awesome ambrosia maple workbench top too? Or will we see this in the next scrap wood challenge? 😂😢

    Although I’m proud of how it cane out,, my first desk, (and only so far), isn’t nearly as nice as yours is Mike,. Great job as usual! It was also my first project after becoming disabled and being able to devote more time to what had always been a hobby since taking wood shop in the 8th grade a very long time ago. I used plywood that I had on hand, which was ¾" of whatever birch plywood THD sells, so it had a nice finish on both sides. There were some gaps between the layers, and since I kind of like the look of the edge of plywood, I had to fill in those gaps. It still made a really nice looking desk, although it’s a little small for my needs. That’s the price of using what you have on hand though, your project is dependent on the amount of wood you have. It doesn’t help that I couldn’t drive myself to get more, that’s an unfortunate after effect of my surgery, among other things.

    Gorgeous desktop! Great work, man!

  10. Matt Hunt on July 23, 2023 at 3:39 pm

    "it’s easier than you think" is how you opened this… all you need is a jointer, a planner, a table saw, a chop saw, a pocket jig, a spray booth with all the spraying equipment, a band saw, a trim router, a table router and, many many clamps. But yeah, lol, easy 🤪

    This is my dream desk and shop setup. My husband and I always wanted a shop like this however, he developed a rare degenerative and fatal disease. We always dreamed of working together in a shop creating beautiful furniture and such. Your family is blessed to have such a talented husband, father in their lives!
