This is my effort at the lap desk that was featured in the 9/10 2000 issue of FWW. It is a very late Christmas present for my son, but almost on time for his birthday. The article used a plywood core, but I don’t know how to veneer, so I used Mahonie Jawa. The contrasting drawer front is Suar. Joints on the box are mitred dovetails so it might just survive leaving the tropics when the boy goes off to school next year. Made by hand.
The impossible dream
