This writer’s box is inspired by a formal secretary desk. Unfortunately it also resembles a breadbox. That notion out of the way, it is a neat way to carry your writing materials anywhere so you can write, pay bills, or doodle.
The box is made of 1/2” thick cherry. The interior compartments are dovetail joined together. The slide out drawer for pens and pencils is walnut and slides in and out on a sliding dovetail guide.
The handles are made of walnut and inlaid on the top and on the drop-leaf.
The intereior “floor” is baltic birch and left natural to brighten up the interior.
I had tried to keep all metal out of the project, but finally caved and used some brass hinges and a small brass knob on the pen/pencil drawer.
This is an early cordless laptop/word processor unit. I have considered making a stand so it could have its own “docking station”.
