Well, we had to load this tonight, so I went ahead a snapped the pictures. This is basically the same construction, design and finish as the Brigadier Desk. Everything was scaled down a little, to keep the footprint the same as the desk, but still leave room for the equipment and a nice, wide pull out keyboard tray.
Check out that louver panel. Told yall about the wobble dado episode Ever think you’d see high end furniture made with a wobble dado. Me either. Well, whatever works.

Looks great. I like the louver feature to keep the computer well vented.

Very nice desk. I like the louvered vent on the back for the CPU. Where did you put the cable runs? Is a matching desk chiar part of the ensemble?

I found this by accident. I mean, I didn’t get a notifier of your posts as I usually do, and just stumbled upon it. I’m glad I’m a stumbler, wouldn’t have wanted to miss this. I’m assuming it’s all rift/quarter sawn white oak with mortise and tenons? The louvered rear panel is a really neat design feature. I’m gonna have to get some dimensions from you shortly——please?? My wife needs something like this! No she didn’t make me say it either, I honestly was thinking of her. Tim as always congratulations on an excellent build. Keep on keeping on!

Thanks for all the compliments, everyone.
Vincent, there are no cable runs. Everything the client has is wireless, with the exception of his monitor, which he just wanted to run the cable out the back, through the louver. I left out the top louver for this purpose. His cpu sits in one bay and the other pieces sit in the other. He[s on a wireless network with his wife’s computer for his printer.
