Mission Writing Desk
¶ Picture 14 gives a very good idea of a desk which looks hard to make but is not so difficult as might appear at the first glance. The lid can be made first, then the sides and shelves carefully fitted and a ¼ inch iron pin inserted between the sides and the lid so that all refastened together at once. Then the back is put in and is held in place by small blued oval headed screws. After this the letter and blotter rack may be sprung into place and, with a little button at the top under which is a leather washer, the desk is complete except for the basket, which should be woven of willow withes to fit the shelf.
