This Drop-front Computer Desk was featured in the October 2009 WOOD magazine. I modified the plans slightly to make it into a fly tying desk. I removed the center support on the base and added a back stretcher to allow a stool slide fully under the desk. I also added more compartments and will be building drawers to go in each compartment. It is made out of cherry and spalted maple.

Excellent job-I really like the combination of cherry and spalted maple used.
What did you use to finish the wood?
