Question

Customized Receptionist desk


I need a carpenter to build a receptionist desk made out of wood (or whatever material that is reaseneable and good).
our office is requiring it to be standardized and we need someone to give us a quote in order to have it made.
Anyone knows of a carpenter in South Florida??
We have the design and dimensions to follow, it is about 6 feet by 4.
Thank you!
Beth

Why does it need to be customized?
Have you checked around at office supply stores?

Probably about $1,400.00 to $ 1,600.00, delivered.

You're shopping for this on a DIY forum?

You want a company that makes cabinets. Whether a lone individual or a larger shop.

I'm in, I don't have anything to do again anyway. Picked up a new job at the last minute yesterday and by ten o'clock this morning it has been moved back to after the first of the year.
