Very nice rentman. The grain pops out nice. What did you use for a finish?

Really nice job, rentman! The wood just pops! Can you talk about the joinery for the top and panels?

Love your work, Rentman. Wow! This Maple really is special. I’d love to get my hands on some for box making. (Did I ever say, “I just love small wooden boxes”?) LOL

That is just beautiful Rentman! – Is that your design? did you use slides? how deep are the tounges on the breadboards? (sorry for all the questions, but – I have hopes of building a desk or two and yours is a great one to model after!)Schroeder
