« Part 1: First look Part 2 of four station desk series Part 3: Finished pictures, was just delivered. »

The desks are now assembled and I started fabricating the drawer fronts and doors.

After realizing I made the doors wrong and couldn’t use the concealed hinges that I wanted, I made another set.
These pictures show some in progress shots of what I did to accommodate the hinges I have.

The parts are marked and ready for drilling for the hinge cups. I used my General drill guide a lot on this project.

Most of the drawer boxes are finished and I am now in the middle of installing the fronts on the boxes and putting each drawer on slides in the desk.

I thought I was the only one who ever screws up. It looks like they are coming along nicely. Do you attach your desk tops to the uppers. I always did it that way because you had a good fit and it was easier to put them together if you had mounting boards on the desks. Looking forward to seeing the finished project.

God Bless

Tom, you guessed right, I attached the desk tops to the uppers it worked out great. If it ever needs to be refinished it will come apart by removing all the screws I used. You will notice I also posted the finished project in the blog section and project section. I was really busy and didn’t get these posts until I delivered this piece. lol, thanks for your comments, Aaron
