This is a project I made for my daughters birthday. I had made the dresser that you can see in the picture a couple years before, but she was getting to the age were she needed a real desk and not the hand-me-down of mine when I was a kid. It’s made from maple. The top was made using maple plywood wrapped with 8/4 hardwood. The cabinet sides and shelves are maple plywood as well, fronted with a 3/4 bull nose. It was my first experience with doveltailing. I used the incra system to create the half blind dovetails. I’m a big fan of full extension draw glides, so I used those on the drawers. I drew the project in Autocad as you can see from the picture below. I can’t think of much more. My daughter really loved it. I think you can see that from the expression on her face.
