    Joining a top to a dovetailed box

    All, I'm starting a desk on frame for my daughter but the design she has chosen (a copy she liked) is a bit different.  Instead of the fall front, her desk will be 31 or so inches deep and will not be closed as a fall front would enable.  The sides will have a nice Roman ogee sweep from back to...
