This Is How I Roll
The plan, for the area next to the fridge, is for a small wall desk. We had one, that my Dad built over 50 years ago, but it did not fit into the look that I am after. It was passed down to my brother who will be the new steward of the heirloom. I decided that I wanted a roll top desk. It was a challenging project, but I think it turned out rather well. I found a set of plans online and I modified them to suit the space. It is quite a bit narrower than the one in the plans and has no lower portion, or kneehole. It will get a lower drawer, later on, when I build the cabinets for the rest of the kitchen. I haven't decided on the design for the faces or the style of knobs, so it will have to wait.
