Very nice desk. I really like the design. I can only imagine what your work will look like in 18 more years.
Thanks for posting and welcome to LumberJocks.

Thank you very much and highly appreciate it. I was inspired by the American design, it’s much better than in Slovakia…

Great details with the raised panels and trim. Any plywood used? It must weigh 100kg.

Wow, beautiful desk! It reminds me of the HMS Resolute desk the president sits behind in the oval office. You like the American woodworking, and this American loves your craftsmanship. Well done!

Outstanding work! How long did it take you to build this? Did you design it yourself or did you base your design on an existing desk? I am fascinated by how you were able do this at such a young age! I can’t imagine what you’ll be able to do in the future! Welcome to our community of woodworkers from around the world!

Yes it weighs over the 100kg.No I did not use any plywood, everything is hand made ​​from oak wood ,really everything. I made ​​it through four months at home during school.I did it under one photo from the Internet.

Parts prepared for the gluing

nobody in my district have anything like this…
