My wife is into card making and crafting in general. I built her a desk with a lot of work space and open cubby’s with the ability to access containers from either side. But the exciting piece is the paper sorting cabinet with adjustable and removable shelving. A lot of repeating cuts with the table saw. 1/8 inch mdf for the shelvess. 3/4 inch oak ply trimmed in oak, stained in an espresso finish. The desk is oak ply painted white base with a pre-manufactured butcher block counter top stained with an espresso finish. I did not build the tall corner cabinets, they were scavenged from an existing project.

Almost looks like a CD cabinet – well done, I am sure your wife is very happy to have this at her disposal.

Wow, very impressive. Bet that took a chunk of time to make?

Thank you all for your supportive comments. It maybe took 5 days on vacation, but months of prep to ensure we had the right layout, workspace, cabinet structure. I left a lip on the top in order to build up for expansion on the cabinet. By the looks of the room, I will have to do that sooner than later.

Have your say...
