|This Desk Organizer looks good from any side (even the back), so you can put it on a desk, table, or countertop.
Originally, we designed it to fit in our Roll-Top Desk. But it looked so good that we got to thinking, "Why hide it?" There's always a need to organize letters, bills, junk mail, etc., even if you don't have a roll-top.
There are five compartments, plus two drawers, and the space beneath for storage. The drawers have box jointed corners with simple cut-outs instead of handles. The project has no hardware.
CONSTRUCTION. We built our Desk Organizer out of solid cherry with a cherry plywood back. The overall size is 40" wide x 9-1/2" deep x 10" high.
This project was originally published in Woodsmith No. 103.
