2-in-1 Desk Set
Combining brass and an eye-catching exotic hardwood, this handy desk set gives you the opportunity to develop some new skills.
This desk set is really two projects in one. At first glance, it looks like a simple stamp dispenser. But when you take a closer look, you’ll also find a brass-and-wood letter opener with a replaceable blade. And, there’s plenty to challenge your woodworking and metalworking skills. But don’t worry — you’ll be using full-size patterns to simplify the complex parts. And this is also the perfect project for that extra-special piece of wood you’ve squirreled away.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
