I’m designing what I suppose could be called a credenza and hutch for my office. I’ve been woodworking for years but this is my first major project. I’ve worked in semi-custom cabinet shops so my knowledge is mostly based on cabinet building.
The lower section is 30” H x 20” D x 96” W. There are 3 basic sections: 2 drawer stacks left, 1 double door center, 2 drawer stacks right. Each drawer stack is 16” W ID. I’m not making the top section the same width or depth so I’m going to use a 3/4” x 20” x 96” piece of cherry ply for the top of my lower section. Everything is getting face framed with 3/4” solid cherry. Lower doors will be 2” frames with 1/4” cherry ply panel. Drawers are 3/4” solid cherry, surface mounted in relation to the face frame.
I haven’t fully designed the top yet.
My problems are as follows:
1. The stairs to my basement are not large enough to accommodate the lower section in one piece.
If anyone could offer advice on any or all of the above current issues I would appreciate it. I’m new to LJ but over the past few days have read over some previous posts and would value your comments / advice / suggestions.
