Borrowing heavily from the Greene’s—and maybe Darrell Peart, I came up with a design for a writing desk to be made from mahogany. The bottom section is pretty much pure G & G, but the top half leans towards the Stickley style, so I added the cloudlift back to tie it together.
My wife wanted a ‘true brown’ without any of the red that’s typical of mahogany. I think I did a pretty good job of that here. The wooden drawer pulls were my idea, and I like the way they turned out. General Finishes Arm-R-Seal satin finish completed the project.
