Well here my Bow Front Desk finally is. I blogged about it a few months back but with school and everything i’ve just got around to taking and posting pictures. This desk is built out of one giant slab of Sapele. it was 10/4 by 13” wide by 9 feet long. I cut it all up and made this desk. The curved front is made with a simple bent lamination. It’s all mortise and tenon construction and the drawers are hand cut dovetails. The drawer fronts are also cut out of the front so the grain matches while the top is book matched. The finish is a Sherwin Williams lacquer 4 coats and rubbed out with a brown paper bag and the hardware is solid brass Chippendale pulls from Horton Brasses. I hope everyone likes it and I would like to wish you all a merry Chirstmas!!
I also did a blog on the construction of the piece. Here is a link to the first installment
