Long Tapering Drawer of Natural Size
Selection is a new type of under desk
drawer, most suitable for fitting under a
particularly wide table.
Viewed from the front it is about 6 inches
deep at one end, gradually tapering to a
point at the other end. Running from
to back are a
series of upright divisions,
with the spaces separating them being
halved each time, so that the last one is
only the width and depth of a pencil lead.
Now all that needs to be done is to fill it
all the stuff that lies around on the
average desk (mine is like the scene
following a plane crash).
Everything should find its own natural
place by virtue of width and depth. Six
inch dictionary at one end, sewing
at the other; my collection of dead fies in
tiny test tubes somewhere near the right
hand side adjacent to the found teeth of
small, unknown mammals; and just to
right of the diverse mangled rusty nails I
have been collecting for the last few
