Here is my two drawer arts and crafts desk in white oak. It features dovetailed drawers and hammered bail pulls. The construction is mortise and tenon with internal corbels for added strength. I made the upper rails from 5/4 stock and eliminated the web frames sometimes used on desks like this.

It’s a beauty Willy, like all your other A&C projects. I really love that style. You wouldn’t believe that if you could see all the white painted furniture in my home, but that is what my wife likes best.

Willy, as usual you have created a masterpiece. I absolutely love the work that you do. I hope to be able to build things to like this someday.

Nicely done. This is a sturdy and beautiful piece of furniture. I especially like the added detail of using cedar for the drawer bottoms.
