Contemporary Rolltop Desk

Minwax® Woodworking Project Plans

Skill Level: Advanced

Both classic and functional, the roll top desk traditionally has a slatted wooden panel that can be pulled down to keep your papers from view. This design has a spacious drawer and a pigeonhole shelf unit. The sides extend to serve as legs instead of resting on pedestals for a more modern look.
