I made this cherry desk organizer about 1 year ago and had a lot of fun making it. After spending hours trying to generate a plan/design, I decided to just start cutting and glueing with some general dimensions in mind and then made corrections as I went. It took me less time to make it than I had spent trying to draw the plan and was far less stressed about trying to make precise cuts.

Look neat and clean desk organizer and and more importantly, practical design.
It’s very useful for those dealing with various type of mails/bill.
Thanks for sharing.

Woodworm and Dusty. Thanks for the comments. I did not turn the pull. My wife purchased it at a local hardware store…it was a perfect choice.

Nice job. That is what I usually do, just do it. Planning takes too long!!

very nice! I had something similar in “mind” to replace an ugly steel cabinet but have not started to figure out what it would look like. Thanks for the inspiration
