They originally wanted a super long desk so she could keep her sewing machine on the end all the time.
This posed a logistics issue on getting it in the room etc.
so I proposed the lift mechanism. Same as the kitchen lift devices.
Plus I didn’t want drawer or door pulls jutting out. So routed them in the 5/4 applied fronts and door.
Dovetails are cut by hand and the majority of the frame is mortise and Tenon.
Not sure if it’s modern or arts &. Crafts. My own design. So maybe it should be called mix up style

You did a great job. The hide away machine is the ticket.

Nice!
I am thinking of making my wife something similar. Can you share the details on the lift mechanism?
