I’m new here, and what I would consider new to woodworking, so please go easy on one of my first completed projects! The section housing the drawers was on its way to the dumpster after being used as nut & bolt storage when I intercepted it to give it new life. It was painted a flat grey so I put my sander to work and found some pretty neat grain patterns. In keeping with the projects “reclaimed” inspiration I built the legs from 10’ oak beams pulled from a skid my company gets material delivered on. Five or so coats of finish later and I was done. Its funny to me that of all my finished projects people like this one so much they offer to buy it, and it did not cost me a cent to make!

Nicely done my friend. It reminds me of old military “campaign desks” that field officers took with them on campaigns.

Yes… a ‘campaign desk’ was the first thing that came to my mind, as well.
This is a beautiful piece…
