Title: Roll Top desk
Post by: Ty G on December 30, 2011, 02:29:20 PM
I know, not of the correct period.  But, does anyone know of a book that shows good images of originals or possibly plans drawn up from originals?

I can't give you a citation offhand, and I have no idea if they were measured from "originals," but a bunch of the woodworking magazines in the 1980s had plans for roll-top desks. They were very popular for a while there.

There is a popular mechanics magazine in google books that has plans for one. It will take a little while to find it but I recal seeing them there.

Also I'm pretty sure in one of the New Yankee Workshop books there are plans for one.
