Very nice job. What did it look like before? Did the window go to the floor? What does the outside look like? We have several of these windows in our house and one of these built-ins is a great idea.

Thanks for posting.

Nicely done Tom, and the best use of a bay window that I have seen.

Great work… ...excellent use of space. Glad this isn’t my desk, because I think I would spend too much time admiring the finished project – or staring out the window! Either way, I’m not sure I would be getting much work done! Love the detail and the way the the crown molding wraps the built-in and the rest of the room.

Great looking project and lots of open space to scatter the paper. Excellent craftsmanship too.

Great looking space. Looks like you’ve added a ton of organization space to an area that might otherwise be left unused.
