Well I been working on this for a while so I figured I'd show some progress. LOML wanted a desk for the new house, she had some rather specific ideas about what it should be. She wanted a filing cabinet on the left, a work space, some drawer in the center another work space and then another 42 drawer file cabinet. when I drew it up in sketchup it turned out the top will be 9 Ft long and 24" deep. Here are the 2 file cabinets and the 4 drawer center sections. She very specifically specified no plywood, other then that she left the choice of materials up to me. The material is 4/4 white oak. One think I did for the first time was make the glue up for the drawer pieces as one continuous panel then cut them in the proper size for the drawer, this kept the grain running continuous. Thye pictures don't show it very good, but it was a challenge. I still have some sanding and clean up to do. Then I'll add the feet and do the top. The top will be a 2 piece glue up, my hardwood supplier was able to find me some nice 10 ft pieces of 4/4 white oak that are 14" wide. I won't fasten the top to the case work until we are in the new house in order to make this thing movable.
