This is my latest finished piece. If some of the details look familiar, it’s because I used some of the details from the latest issue of Fine Woodworking. It was just good timing I guess. I got a client who wanted a traditional looking computer desk with three drawers on the top. This was essentially what I originally designed, but I added the bevels on the front apron and the edges of the top after seeing the the article. I delivered it earlier today and they loved it. It was a tight-fit getting it to their office, damn near didn’t make it. Unfortunately, I had to sellout and use metal drawer glides for the middle drawer, it was the best solution that let the drawer glide smoothly without binding and gave plenty of strength to boot.
I typically don’t like working with any oak species, but i love the way this turned out. I used my usual finish, Formby’s brand tung oil varnish mix. It measures 5’x2’6”x30”.
