Thanks, Gary
I went to the home yesterday and drilled them some grommet holes for them and the clutter was growing just fine. I think they have their own fertilizer.

Thanks moment,
Thanks lanwater, I’ve been doing this so long I pretty much just look at the door and decide.
This is a fairly light door, 3 probably would have been enough, so 1 more is just enough for a little overkill. But if you ever need to know there is a chart from blum showing their recommendations.

Thanks L/W, I would be embarrassed to show you My desk at the moment, lol

This looks like another fine project. That’s a lot of good-looking desktop to clutter! (Unfortunately, that’s what ends up with mine.) With all those drawers and storage, yours should remain reasonably uncluttered to enjoy the beauty of the wood. Of course, with the Reduction in Paperwork Act, clutter should be a non-point!

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks kd and Renners,

I used the funky draw bolts to attach the tops together. I have a bag with about a hundred of them, so I’m just going to use them up when I can.

Fantastic job Bently. I really like the solid look to the desk top and the double ended drawers in the pedestal. Everything looks great. How did you join the the desk to the sides?
