That is a beautiful design. Where did you get the inspiration for it?

Hey AdamThanks for the thumbs up.I made this based on a drawing in “More shop drawings for craftsman furniture” by Robert W Lang.It was called Gustav Stickley # 724 Ladies’ bookcase. I then added some of my own elements of my own choosing.

This is a beautiful desk. What is the wood and what type of finish did you use? Is it possible to post a few more pics? Jim

A great creation. How long did it take in the creation.

That is a very nice photo and I can see why it inspired you to create one. Do you have a picture of the one you built?

Jim, i put up some of my stuff. your arts and crafts piece is also impressive (i admired the QA table) no mention though—that i can find—of the quarter sawn oak that you used. where did you get it, because even in a teeny image, the tiger stripes are prominent?
