I am looking for plans / drawings for an office desk. I hope to use Beech, if there is any reason why Beech would not be suitable, I would appreciate any tips.

i don't know yet! It is still in the trunk. I know I am a bit early in looking for plans, but until I know what size timber I want, how do I instruct the saw mill? Any help or suggestions would be very welcome.

If you look at the area where its going and get rough sizes for length, depth and shape give me a shout. A kidney shaped top, with a file drawer on one side and a cabinet or other drawers the other size would look nice, just an idea. I made one recently in oak with drawers on the working side and two glass doors on the front. The top had leather inlayed into an oak frame

thanks for your reply, after looking at our requirments and space, the idea of a "double desk" might be the best. for this we thought if I made three "two-drawer" filing cabinets and put a top over the the lot. the idea of leather inserts sounds good, but i have no idea how to do it. do you have plans for a 2 drawer filing cabinet? hopefully the timber will be stable enough so it will not warp and make the drawers stiff!

The space we have is 10ft and the idea would be to have one 2 drawer cabinate, space for legs under neath, another cabinate, more space and the 3rd cabinate.

the desk top would rest on 3 supports, one at each end and the trird in the center. two of these supports would be 2 drawer filing cabinets and the third might be a set of drawers (or a third filing cabinet)
