Exceptional design and carving!! But why create such a stunning piece and use those cheep drawer slides and metal clips? I would challenge you on your next go around do dovetails or some decorative joint and to either drop the metal slides all together or use under mounted full extension slides that do not distract from the overall design and beauty of your piece. As for the metal clips, you could use a sliding dovetail joint on the cabinet with matching pins on the “guns”. these modifications would take a little more time but I believe would move this piece from very good to exceptional, from an awesome office desk to museum/gallery level and could add thousands to the price tag.

I hope you take my comments as only constructive criticism. I don’t usually comment on anything I’m not very impressed by. You have a lot of talent so keep it up

take care

It is very good comment.. This desk was a project for my university and at the end of the year I didn’t have time to think about details and extra money for a good drawer runners… but I’ll definitely modify this desk now when I have time.
