Cherry Slant Front Desk

slant front desk - closed cherry slant front desk details

Richard Bissell Fine Woodworking

The first major piece I made when I started out as a furniture maker in 1982 was a classic slant front desk with a full bureau’s worth of drawers under the desk, large brass bail-style drawer pulls with back plates, locks with large brass escutcheon plates, quarter columns, etc.  It was a well made interpretation of a classic design but not very well suited to today’s world where most “desk work” is done on a laptop or tablet if not a smartphone.  There’s just not the need for all that storage space anymore.  This updated slant front desk is pared down to the essentials: one large and one small drawer, cubbies for sorting bills or other items, and a deep open work surface.  When you’re finished with your work just close it up for a clean, beautiful and compact presentation.

Dimensions: 35 1/2" w x 42"h x 22" - 38" d

Price: $4500
