Project Information

I had been meaning to make desks for my six year old and four year old for a little while now, and finally got that checked off the list. They have been using them for the past couple weeks and love them.

These desks are based off of a design in Wood Magazine #83.

The desks are made with cheap poplar and a birch plywood top. I'm anticipating these things will take a beating, so I will easily be able to change the top at a later date if needed.

The kiddos went with me to the lumber yard to purchase the wood, picked out all the colors, and did a lot of the painting. They also enjoy being my shop elves and vacuuming any dust in sight.

Great desks. I can see how your little ones would really like playing with them. I sure wish our Grandkids lived closer. I really enjoy making toys for them, but shipping large items gets pretty costly…a package of toys about 18" around cost me $50 the other day to ship.

These look great and from the colors it is easy to tell which one belongs to who.
