Learn how to build this DIY A-frame desk with drawers. This simple yet stylish wood desk is easy to make and makes any home office pop!
STEP 1 – Make cuts
Cut the plywood per the plans using a circular saw and a straight edge guide.
STEP 2 – Build top frame
Make pocket holes in the plywood and build the frame for the drawers. Remember plywood has a special setting for the Kreg Jig.
STEP 3 – Build and install drawers
Build the two drawers using 1×3 boards. Install the drawer slides in the top frame and install the drawers.
Step 4 – Attach top
Once the drawers are in place, go ahead and attach the top using wood glue and 1-¼″ finish nails.
Step 5 – Build legs
Build the two A-frame legs using wood glue and 2-½″ pocket hole screws per the plans.
Step 6 – Assemble base
To assemble the base, I decided the best approach was to do so around the top frame so everything was aligned and fit well.
Step 7 – Attach base to top
Bring the base back to the workbench and attach it to the top using 2″ wood screws.
Step 8 – Add drawer faces
Secure the drawer faces using finish nails and wood glue from the front and then attach with finish screws from the back.
