Slant Front Desk
The two-week (non-consecutive) slant front desk is as impressive today as it was two hundred years ago. It’s a place where the owner can show off their sophisticated business acumen and the craftsman can showcase their skills. Because the class size is limited, you can customize the class the way you want. Want to modify the bracket feet or change the configuration of the interior? No problem.
Some of the skills learned in the Slant Front Desk class are:
- How to make a case of drawers with an angled writing surface
- How to make and apply ogee bracket feet
- How to accurately install pigeon-hole dividers
Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through us or on your own and shipped to our shop at least four weeks prior to the class.
Hardware for this project may be purchased through one of the vendors on the resources page.
Each student should supply his, or her, own:
- Safety glasses and hearing protection
- Combination or machinist square
- Bevel gauge
- Bench chisels
- Carvers mallet

- Marking gauge
- Smooth plane or jack plane
- Block plane
- Tape measure or folding rule.
If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic, there are plenty of tools for your use in class.
