Had to build this cherry desk and cabinet to fit in the closet space our house. The deal my wife gave me is I could buy the TV of my dreams after I got it built and installed! I got the general plans from American Woodworker. Had to modify it a bit but I think we are all use to that. The right file cabinet had to be able to be removed as it is sitting on the crawl space access door. I ended up attaching the right side of the desk top to the wall and then shimming the file cabinet in tight so it wouldn’t roll around everytime you open a drawer. Take the shims out and pull the cabinet to access the crawl space door. The upper cabinet is not as wide as I would have liked but the electical panal got in the way. I am going to make a cork bulletin board with maganets in the back to cover the panel door. I also put an edging on the desk top so things could not roll off the top and get lost behind the desk. The finish is Danish oil with some sprayed on poly and wax on top of that. It took me about 2 months of nights and weekends but it turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. The TV will be used this weekend to watch the Final Four! Thanks for looking.

Nice, I want to do this at home also but that means getting rid of my washer and dryer. That could cause a problem once the laundry starts to pile up.
