This arts and crafts style library table, or desk, is a beautiful addition to any home. The lines are simple and the material should work with any decor. This project will require some advanced woodworking skill and tools, but the end result is terrific.
Some people will refer to this as a library table. Most would call it a desk.
I would encourage anyone who is going to build this project to make a thoughtful decision about your material choices. I would consider something that would be expected if this was a desk that was built 80 years ago. Quarter sawn oak, or Cherry are both great choices and are historically accurate.
Good luck with your project. Click on the picture for the full woodworking plans.
