This is a desk I made for my brother in law, Nothing fancy, plywood, poplar and store bought medallion for the leg. The hardware is just part of my dumpster diving collection

No, 12.99 at Lowes. I don’t have a lathe, so just the mortises on store bought legs.

John -

Another nice project and good use of readily available materials.
How did you finish the poplar? I’d like to be using more of it because of its
availablility and low cost, but have been stumped by how to go about the
finishing – like how to deal with the green tint and steaks.

Have your say...
