no previous part Part 1 of four station desk series Part 2: more progress »

I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to house a computer. Each desk station will have file drawers, a pencil drawer and bulletin board/dry erase board. Another feature is an electrical outlet and over head light fixture as well as a large grommet for running wires for the phone system and computer gear. I was able to get the desk tops banded with oak today. I also attached the desk to the top sections before screwing the base sections to the upper section of the unit. Tomorrow I need to build the file drawer boxes. There will be 7 file drawers 4 pencil drawers and one space with double doors to hide the computer tower. I am kind of slow at this stuff, but I enjoy the challenge of a large project such as this. Wish me luck, this is my first commissioned project.

They look fabulous. Since you made so many, maybe I can sneak one away for my office. ’;o)
