    Removing desk drawer
    I bought a very old wooden desk that has metal hook catches on back, and put one of the drawers in the wrong place. Now I cannot get it out. Need help!

    Can you get to the catches if you take out all the other drawers?
    Is is a desk with one drawer that won't open unless a certain other drawer is open? My old desk is like that.

    Sorry for starting with the obvious. A picture would be nice.
