This thread reminds me that I forgot to post pictures of the pull-out desk in my Argosy.

The idea came from Zep but I modified IKEA cabinets for my version. The printer will ride in the pull out drawer below the tabletop.

Sergei,

I really like your lighting. Did you lay your drawer rails over flat like I did or did you use them vertical?

And thanks for the shout out.

Zep

A "shrinker?" What is that?

I have been reading your posts here and didn't realize we were neighbors. We are in Monument off County Line. How about that fire work display last night and the Star being lite up?

Shrinker's and Stretchers are tools used to do just that with aluminum. They are used to put the curves in the "L" extrusion material so that it matches the curved walls.
- Harbor Freight Tools - Quality Tools at the Lowest Prices

We had all of these very neat tools and more at the restoration rally earlier this year in Albuquerque. We will be doing it again next year as well.

Wish I could have went. I'll be there next year, along with membership in the FCU.

Hi Zep:

I used the pull out devices that IKEA supplied with the modular units.

The two galvanized steel sliders are tubular, about 3/4 by 1 if I remember, designed something like a rail inside a sliding C channel. The rail screws into the sides of the adjoining cabinetry while the slide out shelf clips to the top of the moving channel.

Understand what I mean?

The desk is at a good work high when I am sitting opposite on a slightly pulled out bed.
