This counter is one I built for my fathers firm back in the summer. I managed to get it painted a few weeks ago as they were moving into the office. It's being used now and it seems to work well.
The brief was a good solid top, shelves to store leaflets and an area to display them. I made the majority out of 18mm and 12mm ply. The top was doubled up for extra strength, and all edged so it could be painted to a good finish.
|Tehmidle section. 3x2 stud sandwiched with 12mm ply.|
|Starting to take shape. The Festool came into it's own on the project, allowing me to make straight cuts on the ply|
|Shelves all fitted in the main unit|
|A second unit to store manuals and other bits built to the side|
|Edging the top. I used 2x1 PSE for edging so it's nice and strong.|
|The unit finished ready for painting|
|Three coats of paint later it's all finished|
|A little side bar going off to one side as well.|
A great project to build and I'll be interested to see if it works as well as we think it will.
