Home office for a retiring accountant. Wanted it in a dark timber to match doors and skirting boards all through the house. Floor to ceiling shelving. Sapele/mahogany veneer mdf. The inch thick top was made using 3/4” Veneer mdf with a 1/4 plain mdf glued to the underside, edges profiled and raw mdf edges finished with mahogany acrylic varnish, sanded back the top and finished it all with a/c lacquer. Top is jointed together using a kitchen worktop router jig and held together with worktop connector bolts. The four drawers are made with the rails to hold foolscap suspension files. The mitre on the front left kicker looks a bit rough in the photo but I didn’t leave it that way. (That’s lacquer in the coffee jar).
This is the kind of job I’d like to be doing all the time, big involved stuff where you are just on it, and it only for the duration. As a side note, real mahogany hasn’t been available to purchase in Ireland since the late seventies, so sapele is sold as the closest thing.
