My second “big” project, a writing desk for a guest room. Got the plans from Steve Ramsey’s web site. Made a table saw jig to cut the taper on the legs. The first two coats of poly-stain on the top looked great. And then I hit it with a disastrous third coat. After a lot of work (sanding and re-staining) it ended up with that old worn used look and to be truthful, that’s a nice look for a writing desk. Like saying “many great things were once written on this desk.”

This is a very attractive desk. You did a wonderful job on it.
