there's an amish furniture store just up the road, but I've never been
in.  I'll check it out.

Are you anywhere near an area where Amish live?  Here in Wisconsin there are
many Amish furniture places, all made with solid wood, for a reasonable
price (usually a lot less than other solid-wood furniture companies).
I think a co-worker picked up a corner desk from this place
http://www.theboardstore.biz/index.html, but then again, it's local to us.

Subject: Re: [PCTECH] Home office design

While we're on the subject, I'm in the process of creating my own home
office.

I've only got about a 12x11 space, and I want more of a workcenter than just
a desk.

I've been all over town at office supply stores, furniture stores,
everywhere, looking at stuff, websites, etc, and there seems to be just two
choices:  well designed but cheaply built junk, or less well designed but
well built and very expensive stuff that mostly goes in to million dollar
homes in rooms that no one will really do any real work in.

does anyone know where can i find some reasonably priced but well designed
office furniture?

I'm looking for a corner hutch type of thing, with plenty of flat desk space
and storage.  For the space i'm filling, I don't need or want $4000 worth of
furniture in a 120k house.

I can probably go as high as $1500.  The best place on the web I've found
is, of all places, Staples website and this stuff:

http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaplesProductDisplay?store
Id=10001&langId=-1&partNumber=SS990065

at the bottom of this page, (look for "bush master simulator") they even
have a handy little web app to draw out your office and add the modular
components to build your office, and then it'll give you a parts list to
order with.

Using that tool, I've  a pretty decent layout for my space, and the price is
reasonable, but I have no idea about the quality of this stuff - is it all
particle board crap?  I have no idea, it might be nice, but they don't have
any in stock at my local staples.  plus, I'm not sure I like the way it
looks.

Any ideas?

Rick
