An expandable storage solution that addresses the mess

In this digital age, almost any tabletop can serve as a home office. But laptops and smart phones haven’t completely eliminated the need for the real world office supplies. Unless they’re corralled, pens, staplers, stamps, and envelopes can easily create chaos. This project will address the problem in several ways.
Featuring three drawers and an assortment of slots and cubbies, this organizer offers lots of options. It even has a till with a concealed power strip so you can power up your electronic gadgets. But the neatest thing is that it adjusts in length. You can expand the two-part design to match your existing desktop space, or close it up for a more compact look.
Construction is quite straightforward—dadoes reinforced with screws for the case and routed lock joints for the drawer corners. I made the organizer from red oak and finished it with a gel stain, followed by a shellac topcoat. Check out the ConveniencePlus Buying Guide, page 54, for the list of needed materials.
