On a visit to Ralleigh in May for a Triangle Woodworkers Association monthly meeting, I visited my favorite consignment furniture store. It did not disappoint being filled with lots of news inventory for me to examine and share. Three desks stood out to me as being especially worthy of exploration.
First up is a large carved desk. Not much storage but lots of carved details.
Next is this attractive yet fairly conventional slant front desk.
With a nice but rather conventional gallery.
Only thing is the sliding door that allow access to a storage compartment below the gallery and above the drawers.
If you look at the original picture, you can see the drawer that usually lives between the lopers (lid support) is missing.
The last desk is this ornately carved fall front desk.
It too has a missing drawer between the lopers.
When you look in the gallery, you can’t see any obvious access to the storage compartment.
Until you find the sliding board in the floor of the gallery.
And in this desk, the lopers are actually small drawers.
