This is a simple inlayed computer table that I made. I used oak for the most part except for the edges I used walnut. The drawer handles are handcrafted with ebony wood. For the frame the loose tenon was constructed with a home made slot mortiser. With my home made dovetail machine I constructed the back of the drawer box. (It is a hobby of mine to contruct home made machinery). Next time I will be posting one of my home made machines.

That is a very nice desk. I like the design a lot and you did a good job on it. I like the fact that you made your own drawer pulls. Details like that really make a piece unique.

btw I would love to see some on your homemade machines.
