A folding desk influenced by Shaker furniture design and chair rails. While stored vertically, the desk is 5' tall and stands off the wall only 4.5". Unfolded, the desk extends 5' and sits 2.5' off the ground, an industry standard dimension. The three pieces that make up the top, leg, and foot of the desk are held together with a canvas hinge, which is housed in a routed channel. Canvas handles facilitate the moving of the desk.
