First decide on the space where you want to put it. Measure that up so you know up front what the maximum size is. Then think about what features you want to include like drawers, shelves, etc. Then look at other designs and narrow that down to what you like. Also think about your tooling, what can you do with what you have? Then make some drawings, rough sketches area all you need. Then you will be be ready to build after you acquire the materials.

Do a Google search on ” child study table ”. There are many pictures you can get ideas from.

How old are the kids?

google is your friend !! make a search for Child's Study Table
personally, I have always liked the “Old School” style of furniture for kids.
but – don’t make it too small as kids tend to grow faster than weeds.
unless – you plan to have more kids down the line.


and AG takes the lead by a nose !!!!

Get a melamine from your hardware store (laminated top in wood section). Then grab some fence posts for legs. You are pretty much done from there. Just have a saw and drill to assembly.

The basic table styles and construction methods can be learned from any good book on Shaker furniture construction. Once you understand how they are built, you can do any style. The exception would be the peg leg or staked style.
