The daughter of one of my best customers asked me to build a four shelf desk organizer. She gave me dimensions but they did not seem right. I made this a little wider to accommodate a full sheet of paper. She had the ID of only 10 inches. Now most paper is 11” so with her permission I changed it to 11 1/2” inside. I kept the height at 10” as was in her original request. She asked for a light wood and to keep it inexpensive. I had some old shelving stacked in the shop, so I was able to get enough material that was clear for the build. The drawer with the walnut pull was my idea.
The shelves sit in stopped dados. The shelves are 1/2” ply with Pine edges that I rounded over to match the router bits profile and that worked out pretty sweet. The drawer pull has a 1/8” brass pin to help the glue secure it to the drawer. I cut the brass a little long , predrilled into the draw front and peened it in.
