This is the newest completed commission. It is a tiger maple desk in the Chippendale style. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to making another one some day.

Thanks everyone. I will seal it with 1 lb. washcoat of shellac, then dye it with yellow orange maple dye, seal coat, 3 coats of lacquer. All requested by the client.
