My wife had been asking me for a while for a desk to put the lap top on and to organize mail with. After much thought and time this is what I came up with. I wanted it to look like no other. It is my own design. The only part I had truly decided on before I started was the design of the Legs and the basic dimensions I need the top to be so that everything would fit.
What it is made out of:
Walnut – legs and back of the top section
Maple – drawer sides, cases, and mail slots (curly maple for the top of the top section)
Ebony – for the drawer pulls and plugs on the top
Rambutan – for the top of the main desk and drawer fronts
This was my first desk and I enjoyed making it. Things I would consider doing different.
The cross supports for the legs; I would most likely change it so that there were only two of them and make them a little more stylish.
I would most likely lower the desk top by about 2 inches.
