This is a project that I made a couple of years ago for our home office. We were running out of desk top space for our printers so I modified a Woodsmith file cabinet plan into a “double decker” printer stand. The materials are maple, birch plywood, and mahogany accents. It’s made with mortise and tenon joinery. I didn’t have too many tools then so the whole thing was made with a table saw, jig saw, and a small drill press—and lots of sanding. It’s finished with a few coats of poly.

You sir are to be highly complimented. Considering the tools you used this project turned out fabulous. Let me take that back…with a full shop of the best tools this turned out great!

Your design elements are very appealing and the mahogany/maple contrast works very well.
Thanks for sharing!

I agree completely with ratchet. That is a great piece no matter which tools you used and all the more impressive that you used few.
