Fisher's Adjustable Desk

Fisher's Adjustable Desk


These are plans to make Fisher's adjustable desk.  This is a light-duty desk that has a surface height from 27 1/2" in its lowest setting.  The desk can be raised all the way up to 44 1/2" high to be a stand-up desk.  Additionally, the surface can be tilted up to be a drafting table or even further to become an easel.  There's a small surface catch piece that can be removed, flipped, and re-secured to keep your work from sliding off the tilted surface.  There's a total of eight different height configurations and three surface angles at each one giving you plenty of adjustability with this little desk!


Construction is pretty straightforward even for the novice woodworker.  Joinery is done with half-laps and rabbets and the top is secured with continuous hinge.  The design utilizes 3/4" stock so it's easy to use plywood to build as well!


There are many applications for a desk like this that can adjust to accommodate all different types of activities.  Adjustable furniture like this is highly sought after by many and could be a very lucrative item if you take on commissioned work or plan to batch them out for sale.
