I have been looking at moving my computer out of the basement and up into my room. And what a better way to do so than store it in a drop front desk or a “secretary” my dilema is I dont have a credit card and havnt found any free plans. I was just wondering if anyone out there on lumberjocks has built a drop front desk and has a materials list that they could email me? All I need is a materials list so I know what to cut the pieces to and then I can just look at the pieces and put the desk together. Thanks to who ever can give me some guidence or plans or what ever else.

I’ve seen a plan for a drop front desk and it was free I think. I’ll try to remember where I saw it and if I do I’ll post it here. However, why don’t you just find a picture of one that lyou want to build and go out on a limb and just think about it and how you would build it. You’d be amazed at what you can do with this technique and you’d probably learn a lot.

Check out your local library. They may have some wood working books/magazines.
