Hi everybody!
This is my last project! I need a little table for my printer and a drawer down of it but I have not enough space for a traditional drawer so I have had this idea.
The drawer is pivoted to one end with 2 hinges can move without fall down thanks to 2 compass hinge , to ensure the close I have used a sliding lock.

The wood is pine and fir dyed with water aniline and finished with water transparent, joint tenon- mortise hand made.

I’m sorry for my bad english but I think that attacched pics will make understand better.
Thanks again

-- ciao h.

Good attempt to save space by the design of the drawer. Necessity is the mother of invention.

Molto bene Haltman!!
Your English is fine. I need a table like this, I will try to do it your way.

Talk about a hidden compartment! I need to try this on next table without size for a full drawer.

English is great. Hope to hear from you again.
