I’ve been thinking about building a Secretary Desk for a few years now and I’m just now trying to draw something in sketch up. I don’t have any dimensions or a plan yet so I was thinking about starting with the drawers and then designing the desk around the drawers.

I was thinking about the size and I decided to go to an office furniture store and look for some ideas instead of trying to come up with it on my own. If I find something I like, I’ll take some photos and dimensions. I have to figure out what I’m going to do for drawer slides as well. I know it’s a simple stupid thing, but I just don’t want to end up with an oversized drawer. I don't know if there is standards to follow for this sort of thing

Wow Thanks J.C. :thumbsup:
It just never occurred to me to have the files sideways like that. Actualy that solves a lot of problems for me because I'm now not so limited by width.

Thanks again that’s a great help. I have to say again that the sideways idea is going to work out great and now I’m glad I posted because I was thinking it was a stupid question as soon as I posted. I just never have seen a sideways file drawer before.
