Office desk....

I need to upgrade my desk. It is more of a craft bench I used as a kid for homework and tying flies and was a project I worked on with my father so I definitely will not be getting rid of it....probably let my wife use it as a craft table.

Anyways....I need to build a good office desk.....either corner type or against one wall. I need drawers for file storage and supplies.....a roll out keyboard is a for a monitor, tower and printer and I have to have room for doing paperwork.....that's the big drawback to what I have now.

Anyone have any ideas on where to look for a design or plans? I need to get organized.....trying to run a business with a small cluttered desk just doesn't work...... Also, info on standard sizes of drawers....height depth etc would be appreciated.

Corner desks are all over the internet. Very popular designs since they take up normally wasted space.
Then build some shelving over it on the walls.

Start out by sketching what you think you want the desk to be. Study that sketch and a few days and make changes that you can think of.

Then present that sketch on here where experienced people can give you suggestions.

You will find that the sketch can easily turn into a plan just by adding dimensions.
