My wife needed a desk for her home based Tea business so I thought I would make one for her based on one that she saw online at pottery barn.

Merry Christmas Fellow LJs

Very nice desk. This is exactly what my wife has been asking me to build. Can you elaborate on the dimensions? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the kudos everyone. Some of you have been asking for more info on the build. I didn’t use a plan for this project aside from a picture of the similar desk that my wife found on pottery barn.

The dimentions can be found on the pottery barn site mine is wider by 2” and not as deep 18” and I made the bottom drawer deep enough for hanging file folders but that’s the fun part making things the way you need them.

For those of you that need plans has a similar desk plan

Cheers and have a Merry Christmas!!!
