Nick Engler has designed and built many of the woodworking designs I have posted lately. Back in the 80's and 90's Nick was a very prolific designer and builder of woodworking related material. He was the founder of "Hands On!" magazine as well as publishing many books, articles and a newspaper column for woodworkers. He is co-owner of "Bookworks Inc." which produces how-to-books and for years has produced the Projects Yearbook for Popular Science Books.
So today is no different, the first two projects today were designed and built by Nick Engler. As always with project books, build them for yourself or as gifts but reproduction for sale or profit is forbidden.
So the first project today is a writing desk, but not just a writing desk. It is a relatively easy project to build, the gently curved legs give it a touch of class with a slightly oriental flavor. You can make it smaller for a child's room, it's a writing desk, a computer desk, and it will look good in just about every room in the house, scale it up or down according to your needs.
