Drop Front Desk Woodworking Plan

With its compact footprint, this desk serves as a perfect computer workstation in the kitchen or bedroom. The handsome frame-and-panel case will be a focal point wherever you put it. Create striking panels like the one on the desk's door by just gluing veneer to MDF—no-vacuum veneer bags or special equipment required. Included with this plan is the accompanying article on Very Easy Veneering. Or, simply skip the veneering and use cherry plywood.

Overall dimensions: 24" wide by 16" deep by 50" high
