This is a job I designed and built last Spring. It is 1/4 sawn red oak done in classical style, complete with secret compartments. The door panels are quarter matched big leaf maple, laminated onto 1/4" oak ply panels. The only thing I did not make myself are the dragonfly plinths. I ordered those online. The printer in the knee hole extends completely out for top access. It is mounted on 2 sets of 22" slides in the manner of table slides, and the tray has casters mounted under it to support the weight when fully extended.

Thanks. It was a challenging one. The panels were made from big leaf slabs I got from a local sawyer. I had to cut blocks, re-saw 4 pieces from each block, and run them through a drum sander to get good surfaces. They are about 1/8" thick, and then after laminating , I ran them through a wide belt sander.
