I built two of these desks. One for each of my daughters. I am very proud in the fact that they were made from 100% recycled wood. They are built from quarter sawn oak with walnut inlays. The legs may look a little different because they are hemlock balusters left over from a porch project I did a few years ago. The drawer is dovetail jointed front with a lap joint in the rear.
