very nice desk and something you can treasure for years to come
"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson
There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

Very nice desk indeed. I noticed your Vise base, how does that function?

I like the rotating vice base. Swing the vice out to work, back to close the roll top. But does the clamping system work? I only ask because of the clip that seems to be supporting the base near the vice end.
That is beautiful work, and I love the slide out desk top.
Barbed hooks rule!

Each time I go back and look at your photos, I become more and more impressed with your desk. The drawers, pull out work space, handles, all the little details, it is indeed a fine piece of furniture. The fact that you built it with your father I would guess makes it even more special. I envy you…. and not just for the desk. By the way, the appointments around the desk are very well done too. Beautiful!
