And to be printed and tucked into the desk for future generations.
This desk has been in the family over a century. It was in this building in New York City (the people being my great-great grandparents Ferdinand & Marie Doyen, and the tallest kid my grandfather Raymond and his brother Serge):
Strapped around where there are cross-pieces on the front to reduce the stress. Then flipped on it's back to put in the bottom screws.
Feet sliders customized by Ed. Since the felt won't work well with weight on them on the carpet, I put a smooth slider under the slider. I didn't figure glue would work well.
It did take the use of an airbag so I could get the placement right :)
