Very nice. I don’t have the need for one but I have always wanted to make a roll-top desk just for the challenge. I like your style with out the drawers below….....I am very tall and squeezing under a desk with drawers is always a pain. This is more of a roll-top table. :)Well done!

That is a real nice roll top. I also wanted to make one but a lot of things get in the way and I’d need a place to put it!!............Jim

Such an amazing job you did on the roll top. Simple, elegant and functional. You have achieved a good looking finish on the wood.

Love the dovetail dados in the dividers. Also the light inlay looks great.

Beautiful work. The finish looks good too. How long did it take you to build?
