Just finished a built-in in the basement. All started when we were getting tired of the pullout couch. I cut the arms and legs off the couch and re-upholstered it, then built a drawer bank with bookshelf on one side and a desk with cabinet on the other. By re-purposing the couch I was able to keep the pullout option.

Led strips used as lighting, maple and birch used for lower half (dent resistance) pine for the upper.
The drawers are 34” deep. i could only get 28” full ext slides locally so a few inches left in the cabinet.

thanks for looking
