You spend a lot of time salvaging the wood and ripping the pieces but the finished desk is so solid it can last for 75 years. It even makes a good workbench after your student days are over. Of course any wood will do.
Here are four free versions of this desk just for you. They are all low-stress, inexpensive, can be fitted to the available floor space, and can be build with a few simple tools. These plans include twelve sketches, two photographs, and four sets of construction hints.
This Childs Computer Table is solid, inexpensive, and can be adjusted in height to accommodate the child as she or he grows. It features a solid core door table top, a low keyboard shelf, and solid, adjustable legs. The legs are in two parts that can be unbolted and adjusted in height over eight inches in one inch steps.
This computer desk design provides a wide shelf for the keyboard and mouse nearly in the users lap. You view the monitor just over the back edge of the keyboard and you can adjust it in height and tilt.
