This drop-front desk is made of mahogany with waterfall bubinga veneer on the drop front and drawer fronts. The legs are slightly splayed out and are strengthened by a visually attractive rack between the lower legs. The grips on the drawers and front are my idea for something a little different. The interior compartment behind the small door hides 6 shelves to file papers.(I didn’t have a pic of this). The accent feet at the bottom of the legs are a 3 piece glue up of 2 purple heart 1 maple. Purple heart is also used in the draw and front pulls. It was used also (in the way I explained it in my 2’x4’ maple desk project) in the handcut dovetails joining the top and sides.
