Slant Top Desk

This is an unfinished “Pine” slant top secretary desk I built for the my grandaughter. Nothing special, but it took some figuring out how to get the moveable desk top to clear the overhang when swinging up the top to the closed position. Had to put a couple of bevels together. Worked fine.

This is a great build Don and a nice clean design too. I like the door pulls a lot too.

It’s something special if it’s for granddaughter. Very nicely done. Good design and great execution.

That’s a very nice and well built desk, and imagine a hundred years from now when your great great grandaughter is passing it down to her daughter
