Custom-built desk

Custom-built desk for persons with limited reach.

Description
Desk stands in a bay window and is custom-built to fit that space. The table top consists of a sheet of wood; the table is about 50 cm deep and of fixed height. Pull-out storage baskets located under the workspace.

Authors comments
Susanne chose a narrow table top, in order to be able to reach everything on the surface. Nothing should be able to slide backward and disappear out of her reach.

Build instructions
Saw two IKEA tabletops to size; join them with an iron plate underneath. Use adjustable table legs; screw them in place. Attach glides for storage baskets.
