Really nice desk in progress. Better get it finished before supper time or risk the wrath of SWMBO!

Ah, yes, brings back memories of working on the kitchen table. The scent of varnish mixed with roast beef and the loud noises made by a really honked off wife because some sawdust wound up in the mashed potatoes and the in-laws will be here any minute.. Oh and don’t forget the great look of stain on the linoleum. Such nice colors and the shape…... Sure fire way to get a new shop. The desk really looks like it is coming along. Those are quite the work benchs. You will have to let us know how it works.

Looking good. I remember cutting mortises in the dining room before I had a dedicated shop. Good times.

Nice desk and workbench. I went back and reviewed the video on the bench. A great useful design

Great looking desk. I love that bench. Jeff just blogged the construction of his. I’m planning on the two piece version for next spring.
