This desk is made of red oak and the top has a quilted cherry border. The outsides are solid raised panels, all the drawers are half blind dovetails with wooden sliders. in addition to the drawers it has two writing tablets that pull out as well.

That’s impressive. What finishing are you looking at?

Nice design and great build.
I do have a concern about the drawer guides on the large file drawers. When those drawers are full of files it will take a bit of tugging to open them. You may want to change to full extension metal guides.

I always use full extention metal drawer guides with all my drawer builds. You can buy a 10 pack on amazon for approx $65 (depending on length) with free shipping and fast arrival you can’t go wrong

Use file hanger racks so the weight is on the sides not on the bottom of the drawer.

nice job. is that the Norm Abram New Yankee Workshop desk?

I prefer a natural finish on oak – just sanding sealer and a few coats of poly…
