Desk measures 30”x72”. Corners on top are 45 degree angles to match the four (4) outside corners. Drawers on left side are dovetailed and full extension. Drawers on right are actually a door for cpu. Above each top drawer is a writing tablet. The middle drawer is a keyboard shelf with a drop down front. Outside panels are raised and the inside and back panels are flat. The top extends over the back 8” for access to outlets. Both the desk and the stand have 1/4” glass on it. The wood is cherry with Minwax’s Early American stain 2 coats.

Very nice Eric! Thanks for sharing. The corners are a great feature. I encourage others to look at your other projects too. The bedroom set is amazing! Where can I find the plans for the pieces?

Very nice! Hoping to start a desk project for my son soon. He wants a corner desk but I’m thinking a set of pieces like you’ve made would be much flexible.

Hey Randy,
Thanks for the vote of confidence in the pieces. There are no plans for this desk or the bedroom set except for the ones that I have drawn up which are sketches and nothing of formality. If you want them let me know.
