The Tall Desk I made last year found a new home so I made another one. I find the tall profile to be perfect to do business on at the shows. It is made with White Hard Maple. It is 30 inches wide and 28 inches deep. Closed up it is 44 inches tall and open it is around 57 inches tall. It has an interesting little drop front that doubles as a latch for the tambour. An optional drawer module is available that features a drawer made with a French Bottom and is lockable with a key.

This desk can be provided with electric power inside the desk and has room for a notebook computer inside the closed desk.

Great work station for the shows.
The tambour top is a very nice touch.

Brilliant, i like this a lot. Quite original.

Can I ask how you work out the cantilever action? I’d love to try this on a tool box,

Thanks for posting,
