I have always wanted to make a desk,, and something unique.. it’s the reason I started woodworking. I built a workbench and then some other small projects and then tackled this.

I used mahogany and loved working with this wood. The angles were a bit tough, but I managed and ended up making a jig for tapering the legs which was fun.

I also built a drawer that mirros the anges of the desk sides. It starts at the front at 4” deep and goes to about 7” deep in the back, I think it was a neat little touch.

My family loves it and now I am hooked

I like the design, especially the leg layout. I’m one of those who squirms a lot and I get annoyed at bumping into table/desk legs. This design makes that far less likely.

It’s also beautiful, which never hurts.

I like the design.
Reminds me a little of a spinet piano.
Cantilever fever. Nicely done.
