This desk was made from a beat up antique(circa 1890’s) mahogany table that had water damage. I was able to salvage most of it and cut into planks to glue together top. Edged in walnut with maple plugs. Distressed top for character. (it’s amazing what two young boys with nuts & bolts stuffed in socks can do) A light walnut stain on top and sides. Walnut edge is clear coat only. Legs are from original table that were in bad shape so I repaired and pieced them back together with mahogany as best I could.

Looks good! I like the “distressed” top.

Looks like you did a great job with it!

Just curious though: how will the mitered corners hold up with the tabletop’s seasonal wood movement?

Being that the top is glued and screwed down and the walnut edging is glued and screwed in, hence the walnut plugs on top and the maple plugs on edging, I don’t see it moving at all.
