About the Manufacturer

Manchester Wood has a family tradition that dates back to 1891. It began when the great grandfather of founder Clifford Pierce ran a sawmill in Red Bank, New Jersey. Cliff started this wood business on October 19, 1976 in Manchester, Vermont. It was there that Manchester Wood Inc. was born. The company worked strictly with eastern white pine and produced small products for the gift industry. Over the years the company expanded its line and switched to hardwoods such as red oak and ash. It also began manufacturing larger items to market through mail order catalogs, online catalogs and furniture stores. The company grew out of its original site in the 1980's, and relocated to a 23 acre parcel in Granville, New York in 1990, where it continues to operate today.


The Shaker Secretary Desk is a Traditional style product. Traditional style furniture and decor tends to look heavy with an heirloom type quality. Common wood tones are darker shades of mahogany and walnut. Traditional style tends to feature pieces with tufted cushions and nailhead accents.

Small, efficient, high quality desk.

from Nashua, NH – Verified Buyer

I bought this small secretary desk to use as a work station for centralizing bill-paying and other commitments, and managing my daily schedule. It's perfect for that, and it fits in a small corner and out of the way. The hinges that operate the writing surface are pretty amazing; rugged and reliable, yet unobtrusive, and they easily hold the weight of books and resting elbows when I'm writing out checks, etc. In fact, I found my desk will support over 30 lbs. in the center of the writing surface with no strain on the hinges and no tipping of the desk. It may hold more weight; I didn't test the limits. The inside area is large enough to keep two stacks of 8" x 10" folders plus calculator, stapler, calendar, reading glasses, etc. neatly available for use. There is a shelf that holds even more stuff. The drawer is another large storage area. The desk is constructed of solid hardwood, no veneers, with a very good fit and finish. It arrived very well packaged and protected, with excellent assembly instructions. I found it very easy to assemble the four legs and two stringers and drawer knobs. I am completely satisfied with the functionality, quality and price of this desk.

At long last

from New York, NY – Verified Buyer

I looked everywhere for a nice looking, petite secretary desk with a drop down front. I was willing to pay a lot more but this one fit the bill perfectly. Only 25 wide and only 14 deep with the desk up. And yet I can sit there perfectly comfortably at my laptop and there's plenty of room for my long legs. And when I'm done working, the laptop folds right into the desk no prob. It would be nice to have a cord hole in the back, but then I'd just have to look at a cord.. I prefer to wrap the chord up and store it in the desk with the laptop, and not destroy the desk's nice classic lines. It's cute, it's reasonably well made in solid wood, in the US., the oak stain matches the floors in my apartment beautifully. I love it. It was very reasonably priced, it arrived within a few days, free shipping, no damages, and it was a snap to assemble. Plus it's sturdy! A home run. Thanks Wayfair, I'll definitely be back.

Classy Little Desk

from West Allis, WI – Verified Buyer

This was my first purchase from Wayfair. I was looking for a small desk to put in my basement to store all of the mail/paperwork that accumulates on my kitchen counter. Based on the previous reviews, I took a gamble and ordered this desk in chestnut. It arrived within 2 days using regular shipping. I assembled it myself in about 20 minutes; did not have any issues with the screw holes not lining up. The only small problem with mine was that one of the hinges that holds the flip-down top was out upon arrival. Not a big deal though--all I did was put it back in place and it is as good as new. I would definitely recommend this desk to others. So cute and plenty of room for my purpose. So pleased!!! Now I have the dilemma of what kind of chair/stool I want to use. Back to Wayfair I go.

Super Little Desk

from New York

I love this little desk that fits perfectly in an otherwise odd and unused space in my bedroom. It is now my entire home office! Wood quality quite nice. Assembly relatively easy - did myself in 30 minutes - though one hole was a few millimeters off and it took a little work to last piece squeezed in. Draw slide not 100% perfect; I think we need to sand one runner. But nothing that can't be fixed. Great value. One note: Desk does tip easily with pressure on drop-down leaf since it is so little, so if kids are a concern, probably needs one of those wall anchors.

Nice piece!

from Hopewell Junction, NY – Verified Buyer

I had been looking for a desk to fit a small space in my kitchen for a couple of years, and after seeing a TV commercial for Wayfair, thought I would give it a try. And lo and behold. It is so convenient for me now, to have my essential papers and laptop at arms reach. Yes, you need to assemble, but it's not hard. Recommend you put a couple of rubber bumpers at the inside corners of top to cushion the closure of the desk. You don't want wood slamming on wood. Fair price too.

Just As Described!

from St. Augustine, FL – Verified Buyer

I searched several days for the right "little writing desk" for an area in my dining room as opposed to our computer/library. I wanted something that would blend in with my dark wood china closet, dining table & chairs without being conspicuous. It does just that! Now I can tend to writing out bills, & other personal mail right where "the action is!" Love the Shaker style & especially the fact that it is made of wood.

Great small desk

from Mahwah, NJ – Verified Buyer

A great small desk with a great look and finish. No problem supporting the weight of a laptop computer. The only fault is that the hinge pins keep slipping out of the hinges. It is easy enough to push them back in but it is an annoyance, otherwise very nice desk.

Great little desk

from Saint Louis, MO – Verified Buyer

I was looking for a small desk for my dining room. I needed a place to keep my ipad and all of the mail, coupons, pictures etc. that always seemed to gravitate to my kitchen counters. I found this desk and liked what I read in the reviews. I ordered it received it in just a few days. It's made of real wood and it's very sturdy. It was a breeze to put together. It's the perfect size and looks great with my antique dining room furniture. I am very happy with my purchase.
