Here is an early 20th century style desk I finished recently. The design is based on a historical fire lookout desk. Check out how it went together.

Beautiful desk – wonderful replication.

Might I ask: Where did you obtain the aluminum tabletop edging?

Thanks, The edging is 3/4×1/16” aluminium strap from the hardware store. As I make more of these I will probably have pieces of 18 gauge aluminium sheet sheared at a sheet metal shop.
