Hey Todd, do you think he will like it?????

That is awesome mate. Love that timber.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Would you mind posting the completed project when done. I would like to see how you incorporate the rest of the desk, drawers, letgs etc. This is really beautiful and I am gathering ideas to build myself an office desk.

Thanks so much for sharing this.

Very pretty desktop. But I notice in the photos that it is a bit ruff with some voids in the wood, is it smooth enough for a writing desk?
I would think that the live edge would be to the outside of the desk and the straight side toward the user.
Pretty unusual top made of red cedar … I really like it.
