Where can I get one of these brackets?

All,
I am restoring a roll top desk and the bracket in the photo is used to secure the top to the bottom. I have spent some time looking on the internet all to no avail. I do not know the name of this type of bracket - any info would be helpful.
Thanks,
dlb

Is there something wrong with that one, or do you need another? I am betting you could make it pretty easy with just a vise and hammer. I sometimes find it's cheaper and even more enjoyable to make my own parts and tools, I guess thats just part of growing up and still farming.

In the picture it shows the one hole that's facing up countersunk
for a flat head screw. Is the other hole countersunk as well on the bottom? If it is, it's basically a furniture connector with a 90 degree break to sit in a slot. Maybe a figure 8 would work.

Good luck!

The only time I encountered that problem was before the internet. I just cut off some L brackets and drilled an additional hole from the opposite side.

I restore, refinish and repair furniture and this piece is being restored.
