Traditional Lap Desk

Traditional Lap Desk

An elegant design featuring classic techniques makes this both a skill-building project and a functional piece of furniture.

Do you know someone who loves to write handwritten letters on nice stationery? Those writers deserve some special attention in return. Modeled on examples of antique lap desks, this modern version should prove every bit as useful. The hinged top opens to reveal plenty of storage for paper and stamps. It even has a small drawer on the side for pens or other items.
