This is a computer table I made from maple and walnut. My first “real” furniture project.
I used mortise and tenons for the aprons. The real beauty was of course supplied by nature.
I love walnut.
(The photo does make the tapers look funny, but they are tapered on the inside)

I love walnut, too. It’s almost a shame to cover that beautiful tabletop with computer equipment.

Great job!

My next project is going to be a table for the kitchen. Can I ask what you used to cut the mortises?

Thanks guys.
michealray – I used the drill press and chisels for the mortise work. I’d love to have a mortiser, but I don’t have one yet.

Taylor, Welcome to LumberJocks. Nice looking desk. The walnut has a lot of character.

Thanks. No biscuits Bard, just a simple glue line after jointing the pieces.
