This desk was an anniversary gift for my wife. The top is made of solid surface corian inlaid around a 1/4 sawn white oak design. The floating top alsot has lights mounted underneath it to give the illusion that it hovers like a ufo. The drawers on the left and across the top are dovetailed, and the on the right there is actually a door made to look like drawer fronts. This cabinet is to house the computer.

The natural finish is on 1/4 sawn white oak, the black finish is on 1/4 sawn red oak.

Wow!! That is just gorgeous.

How are the drawers working out with the wooden slides…any play there? How thick did you make the drawer sides?

I really like it. Lots of stuff going on. The corian, the colors, the lifted top, the black on wood dovetails, the design,....

Good job,
Steve
