In the words of Stevie Wonder “Isn’t She Lovely”?! Check out the woodworking plans on how to build a L Shaped Desk below. Happy Building!
Dimensions:
L Shaped Double X Desk
 
Materials List:
  • 7 – 2x4s @ 8ft
  • 2 – 1x2s @ 8ft
  • 7 – 2x6s @ 8ft

STEP 1: CREATE THE LEG FRAMES

The first thing you’ll do to create your L Shaped Desk is build the outer frame of your desk legs. You will be attaching the vertical 2×4 legs to the horizontal 2x4s using a Kreg Jig and pocket Hole Screws. You will need to build two leg frames for this L shaped Desk.

STEP 2: ADD X TRIM

Next we will add the decorative X trim. In order t get the most accurate measurement for the X trim, hold your 1×2 up to your assembled desk side and mark where you need to cut and cut accordingly.

You will attach the 1×2 brace to the 2×4 square using a brad nailer, brad nails and wood glue. The first 1×2 should be flush with the front of the 2×4 square. Then you will repeat this step for the other square side of the L shaped Desk.

You will add decorative X trim to both of the assembled desk side frames.

STEP 3: ASSEMBLE THE DESK BASE

With the desk sides assembled, we can now start forming the desk. You will be using a middle 2×4 brace to attach your 2×3 leg and assembled side together. You will be using a Kreg Jig here again to attach them together.
Make sure to pre-drill Kreg holes on the inside of the middle 2×4 brace before attaching for adding the desk table top later.

Next, you will attach a 2×4 brace to the other square x base using a Kreg Jig and then attach to the 2×3 using a Kreg Jig. Make sure to pre-drill Kreg holes on the inside of the 2×4 brace for attaching the desk table top later.

You will then add a middle support brace to the other side of the square x base using a Kreg Jig. Make sure to pre-drill Kreg holes on the inside of the middle support brace for attaching the desk table top later.

Next, you will attach the 2×4 support brace to the middle of the square x base using a Kreg Jig. This 2×4 brace will be turned face up instead of on its side to be flush with the top of the square X base.

Next, attach the 2×4 support brace to the middle side of the square x base using a Kreg Jig. This 2×4 brace will be turned face up instead of on its side to be flush with the top of the square X base. Instead of pre-drilling pocket holes into this 2×4 piece you will use wood screws later on to attach this board to the top.

STEP 4: ASSEMBLE THE TABLETOP

Assemble the l shaped desk table top by attaching size 2x6s together and three shorter 2x6s together using a Kreg Jig. After assembling the top, attach it to the desk base using the pre-drilled Kreg holes.
