After almost a year working from home now, I decided it’s finally time to build a desk for my home office. I decided to go with a modular build, starting with some base cabinets for storage and will add a solid wood top to connect them into a desk.

I couldn’t decide if I only wanted drawers for storage or if I needed a file cabinet, so I built this drawer cabinet in a way that allows to easily convert the bottom drawer into a filing cabinet using simple snap on file hanger rails.

I’ve built drawers a few times, but was still a little nervous about the getting the right fit on the drawers and slides, but I’m pleased to say it turned out great. Can’t wait to get some finish on this cabinet and get the desk built!

Nice work. Modular has some good applications. Office space, especially home offices tends to change alot over shorter periods of time. Definitely a good choice.

Great looking modern style. No one ever seems to have enough file space and if you want to convert back to a drawer, a simple tray could be added to avoid the deep drawer syndrome.
