Just finished this desk, waiting on delivery. Made for a home office in Cohasset Ma.

The table is made from amazing wide bookmatched maple boards. Locally harvested from storm damaged tree. Breadboard ends with cherry dowels.
Cherry base, with pegged mortise and tenon joinery.

Included is a picture of the rough wood left overs on the finished table.

Thanks again to for the photography

Thanks guys. This one was a battle trying to tame that wood for the top. First of the boards are 15in so lots of hand planing, then they moved like crazy every night. But finally I got in control.

Great looking table, much better use of that wood than going off as fire wood. It always turns my stomach every time I drive by and see a nice tree cut up into firewood after a storm. That grain is fantastic.

Outstanding craftsmanship. That table has a whole lotta character.
The wood is great, the continuous grain across the front, the bread board edges and the dowels. Wow!!!

Thanks, the drawer is traditional wood construction with runners and kickers.
