If you need a fresh workspace in your home, it’s likely that you have considered making a DIY desk. The project doesn’t have to be intimidating. There are many good methods of constructing a DIY desk that are simple enough for the beginner and won’t break the bank when it comes to materials. Many of these desks would fit in the rustic or farmhouse home. There are several others with 1950s style modern design and others still with an industrial vibe. Some of the desks are constructed with metal plumbing pipe and others with shiny copper pipe.
Most of these desks combine practicality with a solid sense of style. Drawers are harder to make, but pull-out baskets or crates can take their place for the less experienced woodworker. These desks use space creatively. One example shows how to convert an unused closet into a desk area. Another design tucks a desk into an alcove, utilizing wasted space. A desk is set at bar height in another room, giving a trendy but practical look.
