Setting up a home office involves time, money and careful planning. For the creative woodworker, it can also mean the satisfaction of building each piece yourself. With designs ranging from weekend projects to a fully-realized computer desk all of the plans in this book are fresh, functional and fun to build, including a stand-up desk recalling the unique work habits of Ernest Hemingway. Everything in this book is accessible, even for beginning woodworkers without elaborate shops. Designs include desks, shelving, room dividers and more. Easy-to-follow instructions are accompanied by detailed photographs showing all the key steps. Projects can be completed quickly, so craftsmen save money without a huge investment of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic tool! 16 Feb 2009
By J. Turner - Published on
A number of years ago I wanted to make a horizontal file cabinet for my wife. After a lot of searching online for good plans, I came across this book. Although I was skeptical, it was the best (promise of) plans I could find. The description, discussion and step-by-step instruction was terrific and the file cabinet turned out perfect! Not only did I save money by building my own, but it's more of what I wanted to begin with and I had almost as much fun building it as surprising my wife with it on her birthday. We're considering remodeling the kitchen in our new house, and Danny Proulx's other books are high on my list for new cabinets if we decide to do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good do it yourself book 8 Feb 2013
By diamond770 - Published on

I have some experience with building things but I wanted to build a computer desk for my son with drawers and wasn't comfortable doing this without some help so I bought this book. One of the projects in the book was what I wanted to build so that worked out good.
The author recommends building with pressboard but I prefer solid wood. So I built using the material I prefer but using his plans. I will probably build something else from the plans in this book someday. The desk I built turned out well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good quality book 4 Feb 2013
By R. BARGEIII - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a novice woodworker, I like the book and it is giving me lots of ideas. I would like to have seen cutting plans for maximizing utilization of materials but that is left up to the user. Seems a little dated and could have included more details on all the projects. For my office project, I'm relying on several other books more than this one.
