Dropfront Writing Desk

This new design offers a complete self-contained work environment in a single handsome and substantial piece of furniture. With a depth of only 14" and a width of 35", The DropFront conserves floor space while providing a generous workspace. The interior has a removable oak organizer with seven letter boxes angled outward for ease of access. The dropleaf can be secured by an English-made, keyed cabinet lock. The top of the desk is a bookshelf which holds 32" of books.

The DropFront is made of quarter-sawn white oak and put together using mortis & tenon joinery. Brass extension arms secure the dropleaf as an immovable and level work surface. The two drawer and cupboard pulls are hand-hammered copper with a dark, oil-rubbed satin patina. Ship-lapped slats make up the back of the desk. The whole has been ammonia fumed for rich color, and then finished with hand-rubbed shellac.
