This is my latest (and hopefully last early american piece I build) I have been transitioning into mid century and Maloofian furniture for a couple years now but some Doctor friends of mine conned me into building them a secretary.
Its made out of African Mahogany (mainly because I don’t like messing with genuine). Theres roughly 200 hand cut dovetails in this hog and all of the hardware came from Horton Brass. There are two deeply carved rosettes and two hand turned finials on the top. Inside the bookcase are two carved fans. The bookcase was left simple (without all the cubby holes and whatnot because thats what they had asked for). Also there is no safe box in the center of the desk because they wanted to set picture frames in it. Really a cut and dry project I probably spent a little over 2 weeks working on this. Finished with 3 coats of oil and 1 coat of Festool Surfix.
