Maple desk with cherry legs.
Drawer is walnut and no hardware is used.
I made it a little high because it’d mainly be used for placing laptop while watching football games.
Desk top is curly maple and it had one blemish so I replaced it with padouk butterfly.
Finished with water-based satin polyurathane three times.

I like the wood combination and the uniform grain pattern in the front. Very nicely done.

Looks great – Should kept the blemish under your belt and called it an architectural feature.
