Ladder shelf wall unit with desk and file drawer

Submitted by hummbaby on Sun, 03/22/2020 - 20:38

Been in need of shelving and new desk space for the family for a while. Used this post (https://www.ana-white.com/community-projects/ladder-filing-cabinet) as inspiration and then used Autocad to lay it out to fit its space. Took way longer than planned after hurting my back shortly after starting(unrelated) and then just having a busy life with work, family, church, etc. Very proud of the outcome.

I wanted to do the under drawer cabinet slides, but the width and weight of the drawer put too much stress on the slides, so I created pieces to hold the hardware on the sides.

It is just under 12' wide from end to end and 7' tall.
