This project was built as a home office for of one of my customers. The desk is made from solid oak with some oak plywood. The wall unit is 6’ long and 60” high. The return is 4’ long and bolts into the wall unit. The stain is a mixture of 3 stains to match (as well as I could) to their other oak furniture. Considerable thought went into this project to hide wires, space requirements, etc.

Note to self….Clean up shop before taking pics of projects. I normally work in a cleaner area and this isn’t the norm for me. I have multiple projects going on but I should take the time to clean up some. (maybe I could find my tools faster)

Thanks for looking at this project.

Beautiful! A world apart from the particle board crap you see in the office supply stores.

And your shop is immaculate when compared to mine on its best day!

Great work, I really like the lines on this well done. The side compartment for the Desktop comp is a great idea as well. Very nice, now clean up that shop! Mine is much worse at times don’t sweat it. LOL

Great job! Clean shops are over-rated! I sweep/vacuum several times a day and still have dust. I also run 2 and sometimes 3 vacuums at a time and sometimes an “electro-static cleaner all at the same time.

Yes, I have clutter too. I use a lot of salvage wood and a big pile is a better chance of finding the piece that will work for what I need. Besides when I am making toys, a lot of smaller pieces do get used up.
