Easy to follow plans, and just the right size for a young teen. Solid build and won't use up too much real estate in their room.
Only flaw I found in the directions was the material list, which calls for one 1/4" square dowel, but once you get to the cut list and diagram you need two.
The fit of the removable top sections is tight, so make sure it fits before finishing. I had to do a tiny bit of chisel work to the dowels.
If you don't want to get a right angle drill attachment, just use a ratchet and a socket that fits the kreg driver. Not as easy, but not difficult in soft wood.

I made two of these desks for my kids. As described in other posts the desk is small. I easily adapted the plans to make it 24" deep which is plenty. Also I used 2x4 stock for the top rail which made the storage cubbies deeper. Very sturdy design.

This desk is exactly what it purports to be; A small computer desk. It is well-constructed, and nicely finished. It provides a great use of space and several conveniences. I would hinge the lids but, that's just me. For those who own 17" screens, perhaps you shouldn't be looking at "small" computer desks. Overall, well done!

If I were to build this it would be 48" wide and 21" deep. It's too small.
I'd get a 24x48 panel for the desk top as I need space. My laptop has a 17" screen and this little table would be way too small.
