Roll-top desk a classic full of handy features

Get deal on plans for bookcase, file organizer

  • Print
The roll-top desk design has been popular for more than 200 years. Follow our instructions and the one you make should last 200 years too!

While its appearance and clean lines speak for themselves, the desk's large writing surface and ample storage space are two key reasons this piece has become a mainstay in fine homes and offices across the country.

The desk contains seven drawers, including two large enough to hold important documents and hanging files. Numerous pigeonholes provide a convenient spot to organize household bills and office supplies, while two pull-out writing boards give you that extra room needed when the paperwork becomes too much.

The desk measures 66 inches wide, 50 inches high and 28 inches deep. The plan for this project has 24 detailed pages and includes a materials list as well as step-by-step instructions and illustrations.

To round out your office storage needs, we have two great plans for a rolling file organizer as well as a barrister's bookcase. These plans may be ordered individually or at a special price when purchased with the desk.

To begin the desk, ask for pattern No. 0540 and send $14.95 (as this is an oversize plan, please add $5 for postage and GST).

Make your cheque or money order payable to "Constructive Ideas" and mail it, along with your request, to: The Winnipeg Free Press, c/o P.O. Box 400, Beaconsfield, Que., H9W 5T9.

You may also order by calling toll-free, 1-800-561-8383 and by charging it to your Visa or MasterCard. Or visit our Web site at www.greatplans.com.

For the rolling file organizer, ask for No. 2912. For the barrister's bookcase, ask for No. 5055. Individually, each of these patterns is $17.95. For the set of three, send $34.95 (postage and GST included).
