Each desk has two deep drawers, a pencil drawer above the knee and a single door with shelves inside. Also features a bench with four file drawers underneath.

Designed and created by Ryan Bruzan. Installed by Ryan Bruzan and James Morehead.

Good Quality Tools used:
1. Portable table saw (minimum) for ripping and cutting sheet materials WITH SHARP BLADE.
2. Miter saw for cutting all framing and trim components to size WITH SHARP BLADE.
3. Circular Saw WITH SHARP BLADE.
4. Router in table WITH SHARP BITS for dadoes and rabbets
5. Air compressor and air nailers
6. Hammer and nail set
7. Levels
8. Squares
9. Drills, drivers and bits
10. Sanders, sponges and sandpaper
11. Coping saw
12. Several other various tools

Materials Used
1. 3/4" Birch cabinet grade plywood
2. 3/4" finger-joint poplar
3. Stock moldings
4. Ball-bearing drawer slides
5. Concealed door hinges

Thinking of doing a similar or large scale project?

If you'd like to know, total man hours into this project from design to completion 136 hours spread over a three week period. This included site preparation (moving lights and plugs, wall repairs, etc.). Could it have been done in a tighter time frame? Absolutely, but that depends on the balance of time and scheduling for every other project and life event.

That's really nice. The window bench with the file drawers is a very clever idea.
