When I was traveling through a small colonial town in Virginia, I saw a similar desk top organizer. I always wanted it one. Luckily, I found a plan in Woodsmith magazine, and I tweaked here and there. It was a fun weekend project.

Looks very nice. The finish looks really good.

Bonjin, I like your design and build. The drawers look functional. I built a similar box and keep my calendar on it. Great finish and color.

In the spirit of sharing this is my take on this concept. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Really cool. I love that style. Somewhere between Shaker and Early American Country? This should be on every school kid’s desk instead of a computer screen.
