Drop-Front Desk

All of the hardware items used to build the desk on page 32 are available from Lee Valley. The list includes the no-mortise hinges (00H51.23), steel shelf pins (00S10.52), shelf pin sleeves (00S10.62), card table hinges (00W23.01), drawer slides (02K62.45), bronze knobs (02W14.44), and the rare-earth magnets (99K31.01), steel magnet cups (99K32.51), and steel washers (99K32.61).

The solution used to antique the card table hinges came from Van Dyke’s Restorers. And the desk was stained with three parts Zar Cherry Stain and one part Wood Kote Jel’d Stain (Cherry).
