Chris Becksvoorts not a sit-down type of guy, so it was inevitable he’d design himself a standing desk. This one has a slanted surface for drawing, a flat surface for a laptop, books, coffee mug, and other materials, a foot rail for comfort, and storage inside for office materials. The base is simple mortise and-tenon construction and the desk box is dovetailed, with an interior gallery and drawer.

About the Author

Christian Becksvoort has been a professional woodworker for 40 years and a FWW contributing editor for 25. “After all these years,” he says, “I still work alone. Each piece is designed, laid out, constructed, glued up, sanded, and finished by me.” He builds between 20 and 30 pieces each year, and they range from chairs, tables, and chests of drawers to lamps, clocks, and small sleighs.

Favorite furniture style? “Shaker, of course.”
Favorite rock band? “The Cowboy Junkies.”

He is the author of the woodworking classic, the Shaker Legacy (The Taunton Press, 1998).
