Basic Workstation

This simple workstation consists of a file/storage drawer module tower, laminate desktop, bookcase end and a simple hutch. It's built using decorative joinery screws that allow for disassembly. You could use standard biscuit or screw-ancl-glue joinery, but if you have, say, a college student who is always moving, joinery screws are the answer.

Since computers now play such a large l'ole in our work and school activities, I've included a raised, closed stand attached to the back of the bookcase for the stor age of a computer CPU. The desktop is designed so the computer monitor can be placed on the right: side. The desk area in front of the chair can be used for paperwork. A commercially available pull-out keyboard tray also can be attached underneath the desktop, directly in front of the seat space.

The file/storage tower has three utility drawers and a large capacity cabinet for paper storage. The tower top is an ideal place for a printer — it's out of the way but still easily accessible.
