    i don't know if you have a key for yours, but I visited an antique store and they were kind enough to allow me to take home a handful to find a fit and return the rest
    I do have the key, but thanks for that suggestion! I never would have thought of that idea

    It came out nice! I'm impressed. Any ideas on the age of that drawer?
    Thanks! The desk was made by the Skandia Furniture Co. of Rockford, Illinois. They changed the name to the Rockford Furniture Co. in 1941, so it's probably from the 1930's.

    It was originally owned by my grandmother and was passed down to my father when she died in 1992. I inherited it in 2008, after my dad died. I'd love to keep it, but I may have to give it to my brother or sell it. We have five cats, so I know they'll scratch it up the second it enters the house! It would kill me to have it trashed after all the work I did on it. I'll leave it in my garage for now until I decide what to do with the desk.
