I just finished this Shaker Desk for a friend. She wanted it large, it’s 52×36, I think. I used Chris Schwarz's plan for a Shaker side table and upsized it. If I had to to one again this size, I might make the legs larger and/or put a fifth leg in the back middle.
I’m mostly pleased with how it came out. I finished it with amberish shellac (mixture of blonde, orange, and garnet) topped with GF High Performance waterborne poly. The top was my first time to spray a finish. I definitely like that method for this poly, especially over a large surface. I learned that GF HP is a lot harder to apply by brush or pad on a surface this large and visible.
