What's Not Included
File folders, documents, notepads, CDs, flash drives, highlighters, binder clips - we've got a lot of stuff to wade through on our desks every day, whether it's work or the tools that help us get the job done. Your best bet for staying on track? The Riverside Cantata L-Shaped Workstation Computer Desk, a traditional desk with an included return. Together, the desk and return have spots to stash every workday item, along with a wiring access system and convenient pullout workspaces to streamline your processes.
The desk is crafted from durable poplar hardwood solids and birch and cherry veneers matched and finished in a warm, stately burnished cherry. All drawers and pullout shelves in the main desk and return are mounted on smooth, full-extension, ball-bearing guides. Both the desk and return have built-in base levelers, too, and the center drawers of each are interchangeable to accommodate either a left-hand or right-hand preference. Fit the two pieces together to create a super-functional piece that slips easily into any corner, maximizing office floor space.
The main desk features a locking left-hand door that opens to a center adjustable shelf perfect for printer paper, a lower pullout shelf, a power control panel, and a small supply drawer. Wiring access holes in the back panel and inside end panel, along with a ventilation slot on the inside end panel, keep cords in order and equipment cool. Above the left-hand door is a pullout writing shelf ideal for small tasks for a working lunch. The center drop-face drawer can be utilized as either a keyboard or laptop work area or can function as a conventional drawer.
The coordinating return boasts three dovetail storage drawers on one side. The center storage drawer boasts a felt-lined bottom and pencil tray. The bottom locking file drawer can accommodate hanging letter or legal files. Above the drawers is a second pullout writing shelf.

Notes on Riverside Construction
All Riverside domestic furniture is constructed of fine oak, ash, poplar, and pine wood. These wood types are durable and feature beautiful, open grains that make them much preferred among furniture manufacturers. Each piece of wood is first graded for quality, then kiln-dried to remove excess moisture and prevent splitting. The wood is then constructed into a high-quality furniture piece using a combination of hardwood solids and hand-selected veneers. Techniques used on Riverside pieces include dovetail joinery, heavy-duty drawer roller guides, and multi-step finish applications that include hand-sanding and polishing for a deep, lustrous result. All Riverside furniture is given this high-quality treatment to ensure the beauty and durability of your final product.

Comments about Riverside Cantata L-Shaped Workstation Computer Desk:
I bought this desk after months of searching for a solid wood desk for my home office. This one met all my requirements. It's well-built, solid, and has a beautiful cherry finish that will last for many years. There are only two things that could have been done better on this desk that keep me from giving a it a 5 out of 5: (1) I wish the desk height were the same as the return; for me it's rather awkward to have the desk a little higher than the return, but I will get used to it. (2) the back panel down near the floor does not have a wire access hole similar to the one on the left pedestal where the computer or printer go. The left pedestal has a very nice elongated, oval-shaped hole on its right side. The desk needs a one just like that on the back panel near the floor so you can easily access wire behind the desk without having to constantly move it, and that is not an easy task for such a large, heavy desk. Don't know why the designers did not think of that. But if you're good with wood-working, you could make a hole yourself, which is what I did. I bought a 4 and one-half inch hole saw, attached it to my drill, cut four holes in the back panel about three inches from the bottom, then used a hand saw to remove the remaining pieces, and finally, used a file and sander to smooth out the rough edges. Now I have a an elongated-hole (about 24 inches long) on the back panel that is big enough to get my fist through and handle any wires I need to reach all without moving the desk. Wonderful!
Designers: if you're reading this, please get your potential customers' feedback on your products before you market them because they will tell you what you need to do to make the product better.
The desk is a winner and I'd recommend buying it, but just be aware that wire access from the back is not the best unless you make a hole yourself like I did.
