Log Cabin Writing Desk Plan




Woodworking Plan: Log Cabin Writing Desk

Coziness is built right into this desk because it was inspired by a log cabin. Squint a bit and you’ll see logs and chinking – the muck-and-straw mixture pioneers depended on to keep out drafts.

Squinting isn’t necessary to appreciate the desk’s spacious writing surface and ample storage or its Arts and Crafts motifs and modern style. Joinery includes a mix of traditional and modern as well, incorporating mortise and tenon, Domino and biscuit joinery.

You’ll have a chance to practice both furniture making and cabinet making skills while you build this family heirloom.

This plan is delivered as a 9-page Downloadable PDF, which you can view and/or print.
