Anybody know of plans or measured drawings for an antique Wooton desk? I have searched in all the usual places with no luck. I can scale one up from pictures but I want to make an accurate reproduction not an approximate. There is one in a local museum but they don’t think much of my wanting to take accurae measurements.

Somebody, somewhere must have published plans or a measured drawing of these desks. Copyrights and patents must have expired long ago. Any suggestions?


Thanks

The only thing I have ever seen is an article in FWW.

I am about 2/3rds way through building one.

I have rebuild two Wooton desk in my career I know there is a book that has a lot different pics from of them. this was the only think I was able to find beside the FWW article. You might want to check with some antique furniture magazines.
