I built this four station desk for a medical clinic.
The client wanted four desks along one wall for their busy office.
The left station is the largest at 50” wide.
The 2nd,3rd and 4th sections all measure 40” wide.
The third station has a set of doors on the bottom to house computer components.
Each desk station has over head shelves to fit files and records, with lighting to eliminate the counter below.
I built large pencil drawers for and file drawers for each desk too.
Every drawer rides on full extension slides (18” and 20”).
The cork board / dry erase boards were a nice addition to the back. For these boards I purchased cord rolls I think they were called Board Buddies.
For the dry erase part I found it on amazon for less then 20 bucks.
One roll was plenty for the project and was very easy to apply.
The handles are oil rubbed bronze, got a deal on Ebay.
Each desk has an outlet to plug things in, as well as a large grommet for running wires for computers and phones.
I used plywood with red oak veneer it took 5 sheets of shop grade plus one sheet of a1 premium for the tops.
I constructed the cabinets with a combination of my new Kreg K3 jig and my old biscuit joiner.
I did all the joinery for the doors and drawers with the table saw.
The drawer boxes are made of Baltic birch plywood.
I used Minwax special Walnut stain before a beautiful lacquer finish was applied by my friend and teacher, Mr. Lehman.
Thanks to Mr. Lehman I was able to supply my client a set of desks with a first rate durable finish. I am kind of slow at this stuff, but I enjoy the challenge of a large project such as this.
This was my first commissioned project.
