This project here was a mother-to-be gift to my wife when we were expecting our first child because she was in dire need of a new “smaller” desk of what we had. Its a solid pine desk stained traditional cherry with a surprise routing that she loved saying “mom” on top. It is now her own official desk and she loves it.

Nice desk, the “MOM” routing was a wonderful touch.

It’s a beauty, Mark. Love that it’s made out of pine.

I’m sure many peple here started off using pine but I’m upgraded to the hardwoods now. But nothing will ever match working with pine. I think its my favourite. The smell of your shop when its in there and how soft and light it is compared to other woods. I love its “country” or “rustic” styles you can do with pine
