@ Ken, I struggled to fabricate a drawer front that dropped down on the front of the desk and then a tray drawer would slide out. I ended up remaking the entire front apron piece as I couldn’t achieve a satisfactory simple hinge arrangement that completely hid the hinges. After I failed there I went online and found Rockler sells a drawer glide with integrated hardware for a drop down drawer front. Just wished I had gone online first. I could have saved myself about 4 hours and some hair loss. Lesson learned some things shouldn’t be designed on the fly.

Isn’t that always the way. I’ve found that anytime I try and look for something like that someone else has already figured out a solution. If only I had looked earlier. Anyway, beautiful job. I love plain simple design like that.
