This desk has it all — a clean, elegant look and some great woodworking all wrapped into a compact and practical package.
Some desk projects can be a bit overwhelming — too large to use and too challenging to build. But this desk is designed to be different. It's easily "do-able," both in terms of size and construction. First, as you can see, the feel of this desk is very inviting. Its small size and elegant look allow it to fit in anywhere in your home. And from a woodworker's standpoint, it's also a winner. The neat thing is that it all goes together in small pieces — somewhat modular. The case is actually three small cases that are built separately and then fastened together. The legs then simply bolt to the case assembly in "knockdown" fashion. Add the eye-catching frame and panel top and the five drawers, and you're done. You'll find that it's all very manageable and easy to work on.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
