        hideaway kids desk Sign In/Join 
        posted
        a few days back I saw a brief "how to" on DIY channel on a foldable kids desk. I'm looking to construct similiar desk for my two kids. Is there a video out there or does anyone have any suggestions on design?
        thanks

        But if you just google "foldable kids desk" or something similar, you can get lots of hits for ideas.

        how many kids can you hide away in that desk, and does it work for kittens? our two kitties are terrorists in the kitchen and dining room.


        sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

        "Woodworker" magazine (Fall 1988 issue) has plans for a wall-mounted desk and stool. I've made several of the stools but had no need for the desk. If you can't find a copy any where contact me on private messaging and I'll send you mine. I don't do much woodworking myself anymore but don't mind helping a new woodworker.

        Duke, you might want to consider editing your post to exclude your e-mail and provide it only if the OP contacts you via PM.

        There have been a number of spammers and trolls here recently, one of whom became quite obnoxious and hostile. I don't think you'd want any of them contacting and harrassing you, for whatever reason.
