Desk made from poplar. Stained with old masters real mahogany gel stained. 2 coats of amber she’ll an 4 coats of clear shellac. It’s about 30 in tall 44 long and 22 deep. Drawers and upper compartment made with box joints. This was the first project that I did not use a jointer to edge joint boards for top. I used the tablesaw to get a straight cut then used a smoothing plane to make a spring joint. Love that method. I wish I had made the upper compartment bigger taller and deeper.

Wouldn’t have guessed that was poplar.

Great work. Thanks for sharing how you made poplar look so nice. I always wondered how. Did you just stain it or pre-seal or anything? Thanks – Drew
