This project somewhat evolved from my original plan to build a roll top desk. Then one day as we were visiting a furniture store, we saw a desk similar to this and the design of our desk changed to this.
I began by sketching an idea on a small scrap of paper and then proceeded to begin building.
I started with the base. It is made up of two modules, one on each end. The left end consists of five full suspension drawers. The right end has three full suspension shelves and two drawers for storage of paper and other miscellaneous stuff.
The top surface is ¾ inch plywood with approximately three inch wide edging. Once the two base pieces were attached to the top, I decided that the desk would never be moved by me, it’s too heavy.
The top provides more storage and I get the benefit of the small drawers.
The file cabinet was a later project, and is also full suspension. You can never have too much storage space. Also each flat surface can be stacked full as well.
