I am a brand new woodworker, haven't even started my first project yet, but I am planning on making a desk that either flips up for flips down parallel to the wall (attached to the studs) so that the whole underside of the desk has no legs.
I am making this for a bedroom that seems kind of small. The room is 9' 10.25" x 12.5'.
I will place the desk underneath the window and am thinking of making it the exact width of the window well which is 4' 9.75".
Here are some examples of what I am thinking of:
So if I do decide to do a desk similar to the last photo it would not be placed under the window.
I like the looks of the first two desks, though the one I make would be rectangular. I do see that in other photos of the rounded desk that there is a support in the center I would have to mess with each time I put the desk up or down. That is not something I would prefer to have to do. But I do not like the looks of a desk with chain/rope supports. I'm not yet sure what kind of hinge to use. Any suggestions are definitely welcome. Thank you.
