Built of solid heavily figured tiger maple, this handsome desk measured 54" wide x 30" high x 28" deep, and was influenced in the simple elegant lines of traditional Shaker furniture. The desk featured solid free floating tiger maple panels on both sides of the leg and cabinet sections, and across the back. The pencil drawer on the left and bank of drawers on the right were built with dovetail construction, and ran on traditional wooden drawer runners.

Hidden Compartment of 2 Drawers

A shot of the inside of the cabinet compartment that holds the bottom drawer. What looks like the bottom board and drawer runners is actually the top section of a secret hidden compart­ment that conceals 2 hid­den dovetailed drawers.

The bottom of the desk is inconspicuously hinged so it will swing up into place with the aid of this wooden lift arm and lock. Simply lift up, and the notch in board rests on the top section of the drawer runner which it goes through. To close the hidden compartment, just pull the lever forward.

For centuries, furniture makers have enjoyed in­corporating secret spaces into their work. The most common piece to find hidden compartments in was the desk, though they have been found in many other pieces as well. The art of hiding a little drawer or box is still alive in custom made furniture. It continues to be fun for both the furniture builder and owner.

When in the open position, the pair of hidden drawers are able to be pulled open, over the top of the base cap board.
