This is my stab at the Stickley Harvey Ellis designed Secretary. No published plans, so found a friend who made one from his own efforts at photos and imagined dimensions. Thanks for the specially made hardware from a hand hammered copper guy too. (That was nickels and dimes….)
The stencil in the center was such an obvious need to me. Completes the focus on the piece.
The piece is quarter sawn red oak, as are all the pieces I build. I edge banded the slabs so that there is quarter sawn on all the front faces.

Beautiful and quite functional. To help me guess the scale, can you tell the dimensions of the folding table panel ? Very good hardware too ; was it from Rockler ?
