Finished this desk last summer but never posted it. Slab is maple with cherry bowtie. Legs are cherry and wenge. Finished with 6 coats of “tung oil” and 3 coats of wipe on poly

That’s a great looking desk—I really like the Slab meets Shaker look of it!

- Peteybadboy

I made the bowties first and then uses them to mark off where I wanted them to go, hogged out the majority of the waste with a router then finished up with a chisel.
