Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Given the amount of time we spend working, the successful design of a home office is critical, requiring the consideration of numerous factors, e.g., ergonomics, lighting, efficient use of space, and professional appearance. Barrett addresses these concerns in the first third of the text, devoting the remainder to the creation of a modular system of drawer cabinets, closed storage cabinets, shelving, desktops, and a "bridge" (a storage device evocative of the cubbyholes on a roll-top desk). The modular approach allows a great deal of flexibility, so these designs can be adapted to fit into any space and to meet specific individual needs. This and the section on office design separate this title from Danny Proulx's Build Your Own Home Office Furniture (LJ 12/01). Both are recommended, but if you have already purchased Proulx and can justify only one title on this subject, your patrons will still be well served. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    numbers bust

    Bought the book and am planning to build the table first. Found a bust in the numbers. The measurements on page 113 do not jive with measurements on page 117. Will have to double check all numbers prior to cutting anything.
