What about the Stuff?

Except for the extreme ascetics among us we all have STUFF. I have a friend who capitalizes the word, just to remind us that STUFF occupies a liminal space between “Really Need” and “Why Is This Still Here?” For the deskworms among us, a credenza of some sort is the fashionable answer.

But I have a lot of STUFF and some of it is odd in shape or use. So I built my own credenza. It has a lot of drawers. Nobody can see my STUFF except what I put on the top. That is only temporary use, say, for less than two years. Otherwise, there’s a place for maps I never look at, a slide viewer I rarely use, letterhead paper and envelopes waiting desperately to enter the mails, and those thing-a-ma-jigs for those things you…well, you know.

There are two file drawers for files I thought I would need to get to easily from my desk chair. We’ll see. And there’s room for my granddaughter’s latest picture on the top.

I made it out of cherry, with ash legs. The design matches the hefty printer stand I made earlier. It can be broken into three sections when we finally downsize. But, of course, I’ll still need all of it.
