The desk is made of solid African padauk and maple. (Except for drawers’ bottom, which is plywood). Joints are through and half blind dovetails, mortise and tenon (breadboards), cross lap (legs). Drawer pulls mimic dovetails having the same cross section. The finish is 3 coats of wipe-on polyurethane. Legs can be detached for transportation. The design evolved as I was building it, so there are no plans and it looks very different from what I initially intended. This is my third large project, which took about 5 times longer to complete than I initially thought it would take.
