I made this shaker influence desk for my eldest daughter, Katie. It took me two years to complete and was a true labor of love. It is curly cherry, with hard maple drawer sides and I finished it with spray laquer. The drawers are handcut dovetails and the top is book matched (I got a new bandsaw, a Laguana 18”, to be able to cut the 12” wide board for this project). I cut the drawer fronts from one piece of wood. It took me a long time to make because I had to learn how to cut the dovetails which involved making alot of dovetailed birdhouse and a shaker step stool. Since I have Multiple Sclerosis, I do not get as much done in a work session as many other people so everything takes longer. This is as clean as this desk gets now as she uses it and loves it. Thanks for looking at my pride and joy.
