Part II of that project is putting the table-top, a top salvaged from an old desk, atop the file cabinets. You'll remember I left the 12" space issue hanging. It really bothers me to lose that much space. With the cabinets side-by-side, there is no access to it, and once I get the wall storage cabinet(s), there'll be no access from the end either, so, a total loss of good floor space. What to do?
Floor space in this room is at a premium. With my intended purpose it will not work to recess the cabinets. To do so would make it nearly impossible to utilize the space in the top drawers. Unlike commercial grade cabinets, these don't fully open - losing in a sense, the back 4" of each drawer so to recess would be bad indeed.

I'm at a standstill until Marty gets the saw out and cuts it. He just got home from the gym and is eating his dinner and relaxing for a moment. It might get done tonight; he doesn't seem to be in a hurry - unlike me.

There's lots to do to put things away, and get files into the cabinets.
