A tall desk that I made for the living room/office. The wood is some cut-offs of 2×4’s from the dumpster next door (the house was gutted and flipped, and I found a lot of good lumber there), some pallet wood and a cherry (?) board that I found in the attic. (Not sure it’s cherry. Any ideas? It looked a hundred years old). I used that for the desk top and the drawer front. Another piece of seasoned 2×4 from the attic made the inserts for the legs. This is also my first attempt at inlay. The desk is 40’ tall, 52’ long and 20’ deep. Thanks for looking.

You did good. I would say your top and drawer front are SYP (southern yellow pine) one of my favorite woods.
