My daughter asked for a school desk and picked out the fancy legs! After a little hesitation I tried my first cabriolet leg and it turned out pretty good. The desk is made out of maple with a tiger maple on the top. The drawers are box joints and the hutch is dovetailed. Overall this was a fun project for my daughter and I to work on. The last picture is the Sketchup model that I made to plan out the project.

That’s a great looking desk! And it’s great that you were able to work on it together—I’m sure she’ll treasure it!
