I have alwasy wanted to make a rolled top desk. Maybe one of these days. Looks good finished.
Hello, My name is Mario and I live NW North Carolina, I started woodworking at the age of 11, making toys and small furniture. also build and repaird boats done cabinet work and house remodeling.
Getting ready to remodel a hitchen cabinet, thats why i get the Kreg tool.
Thnaks for the welcome. Why did Kreg change the manufacturer for their pocket screws? The older ones had a thinner shaft, better machined and held the square drive better. The square drive slips out of the new screws and rounds he driver quite rapidly. Are the older screws still manufactured and is there a source them
Hello everyone, I am jigman, now that name comes from two sources. One is woodworking and the other is fishing. It seems I am always making some sort of jig to get something done in wood working. I think we all do that. The other is fishing. Jigging is one form of fishing that we do for saltwater fishing. I have been doing wood working for years and I am self taught. I will never be a craftsman in the field of woodworking. I just see what I want to make and make it. Nothing special about that.
roll top desk shouldn;t be too hard. The tambor is a cloth with slats affixed with glue. the track for the tambor is done with a router. The rest is pretty basic. probably get plans on line or at the library. try it. it should be fun. TF
I can e-mail you the plans I have from the 1980's. I also have full size plans for a 50x30 roll top desk. let me know, my e-mail is email@example.com
I plan on taking my drawing desk design and making it into a roll top desk on my next one. It wil be used for a fishing tackle work station. I will see which type top will work best.
