THIS design, which is given in response to a request from a subscriber interested in cabinet work, will be found very satisfactory for a writing table. The construction is not at all hard, the main point being to have the lower parts firmly fastened to the top with table irons, and the brace at the center firmly fastened at the ends. This is necessary that the drawer may run smoothly. The feature of special note in this table is the recessed book shelf at either end, which solves the problem of having reference books within easy reach of the writer.

I managed to wrangle an invitation to visit the larger workshop where Rooney docs most of his work. It's loeated in upstate New York, not far from the Albany area where he grew up. I found the famous writer as you see him here up to his ankles in offcuts, with one small table just completed and another one underway. Tables of all types are a Rooney specialty. I pay a lot of attention to the top and to the drawer fronts, he explains. That's where you have the chance to show off your most beautiful wood.
