Great looking desk! I like the waterfall leg on the left side, and the book matched drawer fronts!

Very cool! The figure in that eucalyptus is really beautiful.

I love that the overall design appearance is relatively simple & clean, so as to let the beauty of the wood take center stage—and all of us woodworkers know that achieving the appearance of simplicity is very challenging. The amount of thought and planning that had to go into this is apparent. Great job.

Wow, the “waterfall” leg on leg is amazing. The 45 deg miter job looks flawless.
