Modified Parson Tower Desk

For my second build, I made myself a desk! I really liked the clean lines of the Parson Tower Desk, but it was too big for my space, and I really wanted some storage. I was a little nervous to make any mods since I'm pretty new to building, but I think the desk turned out pretty well. I used the Tower Desk plans, extended the shelf width to fit my printer (on bottom), and then added a file drawer and a "hidden drawer" for smaller items and documents.
