Federal Style Slant Front Desk

January, 2012

I remember seeing a slant front desk when I was a kid and being intrigued with it. It seemed like magic the way the support pieces glided out when the desk was opened and they glided back in when it was shut. I have been wanting to build a desk like this for years, and after a few finishing touches, this desk will come in the house and I can again marvel at the way the supports glide in and out.

Hi Al, and thanks for the kind words. This was one of the more detailed pieces I have ever attempted, and it is always rewarding when it turns out to be the way you had envisioned. It will give me the confidence to perhaps try something more challenging in the future.

You have done an outstanding job building the desk William, you have created a beautiful heirloom piece that will be handed down for many generations. I really like the inlay details that you have added to the desk, Thank you for sharing your amazing work. Well done.
