Build a double computer desk for about $100! The secret? We use a hollow core door for the top.
There's plenty of room for storage and even a printer. Perfect for a shared office or homeschool room. Ready to build it? Free step by step plans with diagrams, shopping list and cut list by Ana-White.com
1 - 24" x 80" Hollow Core Door (like this one from Home Depot)
8 - 2x2 @ 8 feet long
1 - 3/4" plywood or MDF panel @ 24" x 48"
8 - 2x2 @ 28-1/2" - legs
10 - 2x2 @ 21"
6 - 2x2 @ 18"
2 - 3/4" plywood or MDF @ 18" x 21"
6 - 2x2 @ 28"
50 - 2-1/2" Kreg Pocket Hole Screws
24 - 1-1/4" Kreg Pocket Hole Screws
Drill a 1-1/2" pocket hole on each end of every 2x2 except for the legs.
Build four leg sets as shown in diagram, using glue and 2-1/2" pocket hole screws.
On two of the leg sets, add the shelf trim pieces.
Attach the two center leg sets together with the shelf trim pieces.
Measure and cut the plywood with a cicular saw or table saw.
Drill 3/4" pocket holes around all sides.
Attach inside the 2x2 openings with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Attach remaining leg sets to the center storage area with 2x2s.
Place the hollow core door on top.
I used leftover 2-1/2" pocket hole screws (you'll only need a few) to attach the door to the frame from the underside.
