Hi Phil,

Nice job! I’m guessing you have a lot of tools now.

Where’s all the junk, that I normally see on desks?

That’s one beautiful finish you put on your desk! Even with limited tools you were very talented and made a great desk. Thanks for sharing.

Isn’t it great to be able to make something with a limited amount of tools?

Great desk. It’s impressive what can be done with a limited tool set and a good supply of ingenuity. I started with a similar collection of low budget tools and I really appreciate what I have now.

The raised paneled ends are a nice touch.

Did you by any change dovetail the drawers?

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.
