The desk is solid cherry with Mahogany plywood panels in the top. Each of the side wings lift out, not sure why but the customer wanted it that way. The corbels are cut from solid 12/4 cherry.
This was my first experience steam bending, more proof that there is almost nothing you cannot teach yourself from careful research on the internet. Initially planned to make the face out of thin glued up strips, but the try run went down in flames.
The pictures aren’t great, but if they were you would be able to see continuous grain pattern across all 3 mahogany panels, all the cherry around the panels, and the entire curved front.
