Most days I work non-rustic cabinetry. This is a pair of desks for the kids of a contractor I work with. Oak, laminate top, and kitchen cabinet hardware it is pretty much what you find in one of my kitchens. Just with legs. Not terribly expensive yet superior quality. Should last for generations. You will not find that at your local crappyfurnitureinabox store.

Looks nice! I do have issues with the epoxy guides though, yucky. LOL

You make it look easy, really professional work. Your right about years of use in those. Your shop looks great. Nicely lit, good room.

Not your usual style. Impressive that you can move from one style to another like that… and so well!

Dennis: No comments on your workshop. The output speaks for themselves.

A great job.

Merry Christmas.

Great looking desks, and the laminate tops are a good idea for a student desk. As far as the messy shop…..... Your shop looks pristine compare to mine at least right now!
