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

Hey Adam
Thanks 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.

thanks

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

Hey Jim
Thanks for the thumbs up.
The wood is white oak with a very light coat of amber water base dye with water base satin top coat . Sorry that’s the only photo I have.

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?

Hey Jon
Thanks for the thumbs up but I only took 3 photos and that was the only one that came out it was Stickley No. 706 Drop-Front Desk design I think I saw a plan on sketchup and also on an old copy of Finewoodworking.

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?

Hey Ray
It’s been some time but I believe it was Cooks Woods in Klamath Falls Or.

Hey Vincent
I can’t find my notes on this piece but I’ll guess 48” tall 30” and 16” deep
