Five-Drawer Desk

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.
