Home Office

We all need a place to work.  A place where you can keep all those things you need to get the work done.  It’s great if you have a room for the purpose, but you may have to be more versatile.  In this case the workspace is combined with the entertainment center.

DSC_0171 The left half of this unit is for work.  There are file drawers, large and small storage drawers and a pull-out work surface for a keyboard and mouse.  Cables run behind the back of the cabinet to reduce clutter.  The right half holds a TV, DVD player and video game systems, as well as shelves for books and discs.

DSC_0178 The idea is to have a sliding door that covers one half of this unit depending on which side is in use. The door would have another door in it to allow access to the covered side.

DSC_0174 Most of the grain on these walnut cabinets is vertical so I made the drawer fronts run the same way, which makes it feel  more modern.  I also think its symmetry makes it calming. DSC_0186The work surface also has space inside for the keyboard and more.

    How did you do the joinery for the drawer fronts with the grain running vertically? Sliding dovetail?

    • No, the drawer front is attached to the drawer box. The drawer is joined with through dovetails.
