    Antique Transforming Desk...this is amazing!

    Antique Transforming Desk

    If you are mechanically inclined, this will fascinate you! This is such a lovely piece of craftsmanship. And to think the guy that made this over two hundred years ago did it with hand tools alone....

    Boggles my mind to think of someone being that clever. Must have taken ages to complete, and what a work of art!! Thanks for sharing.
