Based on what I learned from my prototype box I made a double-decker version. This time walnut front and back with cherry sides. Bottom is 1/4” birch ply. The “columns” are 7/32 brass tube.
So far it is resting with its first coat of BLO. At least one more coat then a couple coats of wax. I’m not going to put poly on this one. I can remember seeing something like this on the desks in my dad’s and grandfather’s office when I was little. I can remember how they had a patina on them. You can’t get that if it has a layer of poly. The BLO and wax should get me the look I want in short order.
