One of the first major projects I undertook after retiring was to design and build an office workstation. My design needed to accommodate the computer, look built in yet be modular and have lots of storage. There are 4 pull out horizontal file drawers. All drawers have full extension Accuride drawer slides. Doors are cope and stick construction with Blum European style hinges with soft close. There is a storage area for easy access to reference binders and a tray for recycle paper. The computer is located in the section below the printer and is sitting on a pull out tray. The scanner is installed in a drawer. The workstation was built it out of oak and finished with lacquer. I had a paint store make a stain that matched the Formica that I laminated to the top.

Your cabinetry is beautiful and has some very nice features. The icing on the cake for a spacious office with a wonderful view.

Great lighting, very nicely appointed.

Hey, Art! Welcome to Lumberjocks!

Your desk looks great. I really like the glass shelf display cabinet. The joinery on the doors is very interesting. It’s hard to tell but it looks like a lot of work. It would be cool to see a close up picture.

So, are you going to install door pulls?

Just read your profile….....Dude! you gotta show us a picture of your 40 bonsia trees! Did you have to build special racks for them? Might make a cool post in your PROJECTS profile.

That’s probably where this post should go so you have it in your future collection of projects. You could copy this and paste it in a new project post if you wanted. That’s what I’d do ‘cause it’s such a nice project.

I’m looking forward to seeing the posts of your kitchens you did for your kids. Man, are they lucky!

Nice to meet you.

Thanks for the encouragement to post projects in the project section of one’s home page, Mark. I think sometimes we need to make it a little clearer that the forum is for discussions, exchange of knowledge and collection of data and experience.

One of the beauties of the individual project section on a home page is that we can see the growth of the skills and scope.

Very nice work, Art. It creates an environment to think and produce in as well as reflect.

Really nice set, Art. Clearly you’re no novice.

As for your questions, Ricky… You might consider researching the link in your signature. Someone seems to have hacked your account and put an office furnishings website there. (It must have been a hacker. Otherwise we might think you were spamming Art’s post because it mentioned the word “office”)
