Step 5: Drill peg holes for shelf supports

Next, for the interior of the cabinet storage area we'll add the peg holes so that you can insert the shelf and different heights according to your current and future needs. First, mark a vertical line about 3" inside the front and back on each side. Measure out how far apart (height) you'd like the holes from each other. I chose to have it adjustable at a 2" intervals, which gave me 3 different heights for the shelf. Just take the 3/16 drill bit and bore out a 1/2" into each mark you made for each individual hole. A drill press would be ideal here if you have it, otherwise, just be careful you don't go too far.
love the drawer mechanism simple and functional<br>good job
Neat project. I'll be doing something similar. I wasn't sure about your printer placement until I saw the hole in the top for paper. That was a heck of an idea.

A good idea would be to hide the wire trough teh wall :D
Neat! I've got a similar desk project in the works. Good to see we are working along the same lines!
