Free Carpentry Project Plans: Curvaceous Children's Desk

Lowe's Creative Ideas

When considering a school desk for the playroom, it's easy to get trapped into envisioning right angles and perpendicular framing. After all, that's what desks are supposed to look like, right? Evidently this curvy desk did not get the memo, and thankfully so.

Carpentry class is in session! Lowe's has provided not only the plans for this desk but full size patterns to boot, which is a good thing considering the arcs and swoops involved. While the plans recommend using a router with a pattern bit, a quality jigsaw will do the job as well. The benefit of using a router is that you end up with a plywood template which can be used to create as many desk parts as you like. But if you do not own a router or just plan on making one desk, then the jigsaw is probably the easier choice. Either way, once you get the parts cut, the assembly is fairly straightforward, and the end result speaks for itself.
