Woodworker: Richard Williams

Williams designed this desk loosely in the style of portable military pieces known as campaign furniture. True to its type, the desk is made to be moved. The top, with its four drawers, lifts off the stand, which folds nearly flat. The two parts then slide into a slipcase for the trip. Williams made the desk for the Royal Greenjackets, a regiment of reserves based near London. Williams' wife, Loretta, a silversmith, did the silver inlay of the Greenjackets' coat of arms.
