This took a long time to build, far longer then my estimate. Its a built in credenza, bookcase and desk made from maple veneer interiors and rift sawn white oak veneers and solid quarter sawn/rift sawn exteriors.

face frames are all cockbeaded by hand, drawers on full extension slides, small bead mold around doors and drawers and the one upper door has a cork panel.

The desk top will be granite and the whole unit has hidden wire chases, surround sound, big plasma TV above the unseen fireplace

The walls were existing with modifications to the panelling for the desk/credenza… fit.

file drawers>

The door didnt fit quite right, as the wall was…....bent. It needs to have access to the control valves for the heat system



I put a small opening in under the desk panel whih will have a fan to rid the cabinet of heat so that his CPU doesnt “fry”

Very nice office Roman.
Also very well thought out as to the funcion.
What is the wood?
It looks like oak in some shots and alder in others.
