Made with solid White Ash.
Took me about 3 weeks to finish.
I made this desk as a gift for my son, who is starting his first elementary school year this April. (The 1st semester starts in April in Japan)
Now I am going to make a drawer unit and a chair for this desk.
It is oil finished, but in the legs (sorry it’s hard to see with these photos, but they are darker a bit than others), I also used “kaki-shibu” (persimmon juice) which is a traditional Japanese paint, not only for woods, but also for papers and clothes. I thought it would turned out darker, but so far not so much.
So when you first paint, you can’t see how dark it will be, but in a week after or so sunlight deepens the color. It is usually dark Orange or brown.
