At long last, the desk is finished.
The design is quite unusual; in fact, I have never seen one like it. I will leave to you a reaction to how it looks but it does seem to function well. I spent thousands of hours at my rolltop desk during my career and I know first hand how important it is that your desk functions well. Add to that the limited space available in a small Bay area apartment and you have a real challenge. I tried to combine the classic arts and crafts library table with the basic elements of the interior of a rolltop desk.
