My son commissioned me to build him a desk (I’m not sure that commission is the correct word if no money changes hands)
Solid walnut about 45” x 24”
Full extension slides
I experimented with the hickory by painting it brown first with acrylic paint, then sanding it off. The deep grain in hickory retained the paint which gave it a great look that matched up nicely with the walnut.
The drawer fronts look a bit like a breadboard and the handle design I incorporated into lamination
Shipped the desk to Los Angeles from Seattle. I’m perfecting my crate making ability, I know everyone wanted to see it :) I think I’ve got the truck shipping procedure down now. Fairly painless after you figure it out.
Let me know what you think
