Armoire desk 1

Armoire Computer Desks

An armoire (sounds like: arm-war) is simply a French word for arms cabinet and now usually refers to large wooden unit with two tall doors that is used like a closet. Historic furniture books show many examples of armoires that are very formal and ornate, but many American versions have simple, clean lines and are simply called wardrobes.

Recently, the armoire has been adapted to hold televisions and other electronic equipment either in the living room or bedroom. These pieces feature doors to hide the equipment when it is not in use. An armoire can be as bulky and solid as needed to hold large equipment, yet still be consistent with the historic examples.

The plans for our major projects are brought to you on the Honor Plan. You may look at as many plans as you like, but when you start to build please pay for the plans you use. These small payments are critical to keeping this Web Site open.

Woodware offers six versions of this very popular design:

  1. Regular Armoire is 72 inches tall and has hinged doors.
  2. Pocket Door Armoire is 72 inches tall and has pocket doors.
  3. Tall Armoire is 90 inches tall and has pocket doors.
  4. Student Armoire easy to build with simple tools.
  5. Pie Safe Computer Desk has punched tin panels.
  6. Corner Diamond Armoire fits into the corner of a room.
