Fine Woodworking's Shaker Lap Desk Plan (Paperback) (Christian Becksvoort)
about this item
This classic Shaker lap desk features exposed dovetails, breadboard ends with cherry pegs, and a tiny inkwell drawer. The case is traditional dovetail construction, with dividers set into dadoes inside to form handy compartments. Two centuries ago lap desks functioned as traveling offices that stored paper, envelopes, pens, and ink. Today, their precise joinery and elegant design is still popular and can be easily adapted to store a laptop or tablet.
