Chris Becksvoort’s 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.

There is a button labeled "Buy The Plan" right above the Comments button. It leads to this page: https://www.tauntonstore.com/shaker-inspired-standing-desk-6096.html and you can order either the Digital or Printed version of the plan.
Did anyone ever resolve the issue with the plan? I called customer support, but they couldn't find the plan in their database. Has anyone that ordered the plan actually received it?
I have a similar issue. I ordered the paper plans for this project on 10/16/16 and have not received them. I used the Taunton store live chat on 11/29/16 and they were unable to give me any information on when I might see my order. Can you provide any information on when these plans will be delivered?
Please contact our customer service line. They're on it with issues like this. Apologies.
I ordered the paper version of these plans quite a while ago and haven't seen any thing and I can't find anywhere on your site where I can check my orders.
Sorry about that Chas. The Taunton store is being ported over to a new website as we speak. Don't know where it went but I'll let you know when it's straightened out and we can send you a link.
I enjoyed the article and want to try my hand at building the desk for myself. I have unfortunately spent the last 40 minutes trying to purchase the plan and keep getting "can't locate this page". I am just going to give up and use the drawings in the magazine article. Thanks for a great article and good drawings.
Thanks for all the excellent instruction over the years.
When I first saw the stand-up desk I figured the horizontal surface would lift off, (I thought the pencil groove was a finger grab hole), for more storage space beneath. Is there some reason you didn't make that space usable?
