I am looking to build a desk for my office (L-shaped), but I am rather new at woodworking. I have the tools, and this would be a long project, but have no idea where to start.

Are there any good places to buy plans from? Where should I even start?

Plansnow.com is a great place to look. The plans are in color, have cutlists and step-by-step instructions. That's where I started when I built my first shop furniture. They are plans from the Woodsmith and ShopNotes magazines.
