The original of this 19-1/2" deep, by 37-1/2" wide, by 40" high desk was made about 1720, usually of pine with maple legs and stretchers. The cross stretcher is placed at the rear to allow more leg room. The scroll cut aprons add to the antique appeal of this design. Our plan #125 Hutch Top fits on top to form an open secretary writing desk. Build one or both.
All joinery is shown in actual size, curved workpieces are all in full size and you can measure and trace straight from the drawing. A bill of materials doubles as an exact cutting list, there is a detailed exploded diagram, and all hardware requirements are provided. The exploded diagram is so detailed that project specific assembly instructions are not provided. A special booklet entitled Guide to Building Wood Furniture is included with each Furniture Designs, Inc. plan and includes many tips explaining the "component theory" of woodworking.
