Here’s a desk I just finished. Birch plywood and poplar trim. The desk is 6 feet long and 32” wide. With the hutch the desk is 82” tall. The finish is GF rosewood stain and 4 coats of GF high performance poly, the desk top has 6 coats.

Beautiful desk. I especially like that fact that it looks so good for having been made from fairly modest materials.

Did you profile the moldings yourself?

Thanks. I made the fluted molding myself, the rest I bought.

Nice work. I really like the right-side drawers. Everything comes together with the stain and finish. Very nice.

I was searching the forum for “rosewood stain” and came across your beautiful project.
That is certainly a nice finish.

Perchance can you describe how you applied the General Finishes Rosewood stain for me?
I am doing a cabinet for our laundry room right now, and finding some difficulty in the
application of the stain, and wipe down, etc…
I’m wondering if this is just my learning curve with this product?
