I finished one desk!!! But it looks very much like table.
I wanted to use this one for lap top computer. If there is no drawer, it must be a table.
Made with walnut, ebonized walnut, and maple. Drawer is hidden as apron and made with cherry.
17×34 x 31

This time… tried dark wood combination.

I really like like the simplicity and whole feel of this table. The color contrast sets this piece off…

Good stuff Ryan….

Hi Garagewoodworks
I use the method posted on Popular woodworking, steelwool in the vinegar.
After the solution gets dark, just paint it a few times on the wood.
I prefer walnut most to any white wood. Because dark color makes it easy
to ebonize and even looks ok for some deep scratches.

I was told some people use black dye stain. I may try this method on next project.
