How this did not make it to the top 3 is beyond me. The level of professionalism and the quality of hand workmanship shown here is second to none. You are a true artisan, and this is a beautiful work of art.

Thank you all for the kind responses. It was the best commission , the client wanted a black walnut desk with specific dimensions and the rest was on me. All traditional joinery, including hand cut dovetails, half-blind front and thru in back. Finished with oil varnish.
