Slant-Front Desk, 1790 -1810

This is how  I found this poor desk. It had been butchered. The lower three drawers, drawers blades and dust covers had been cut into. This was done to put a door on the right side. Also the feet are missing. It is made out of walnut. The secondary woods are poplar, chestnut, white ceder, and cherry.

It has a simple pigeonhole interior. The molding on the walnut door is cherry. The drawer bottoms for the small drawers is white ceder. The secondary wood for the letter pull outs is chestnut.
