This was my first attempt at a commercial contract with a local builder (friend). He was contractor who hated building the furniture for his jobs so he enlisted me for this one.
The desk had to come out from the wall on a 28 deg. angle and a join the other wall at 90 deg. but hold short 36” allowing for handicap access. There was no +or- on the 36” handicap access. In the two frontal pictures the electricians took over wiring it in before I could put the finished top on thus all the wires laying on it.

Great job on the desk very good size, can’t tell what kind of wood it is.
At 1st I could not figure why the angle but now I can see why. Thanks for posting

That came out awful nice Tom.
Good use of space for the drawers and the small cubbies too.
The top compliments your finish selection just right.

Looks great! :) Love the cubbies..

those requirement codes can be a PITA can’t they? I’ve spent a lot of time wrestling the 36”-exactly one myself.
