My son wanted a desk and I have long wanted to do something in the greene & greene style.
My friend Dave at www.rockyriverleather.com did the panels for me.
The cherry was locally cut and air dried, thanks Sherman.
Thank you for looking.

Very nice, your son will use that desk for many years. Did you follow a plan or is the design your own?

Very nice. I particularly like the proportions. Did you work from a plan or design it yourself?

Thank you all for looking and the compliments, it was a joy to make and give.
The design was my own to fit the needs and space
