I named this desk as On-Duty Desk.
In the middle of the week, my dining table is half-full with mails and pliers most of time. I really didn’t like all the envelopes, usually stating pay this amout, on the table, so decided to make mail handling small desk near the garage door.

The particular thing on this desk is it’s completely Fe or Al free and also no ply too. Used hard wood only: cherry, maple for drawer, resawed walnut for drawer bottom, resawed cherry for back panel. It took a lot longer than expected but I am happy for making one furniture without using any hardware and plywood.
Second shelf is to store the bin to hold all paper trashes. Four squares on the side panels are black mosaic tiles left over from bathroom remodeling.
I’m going to make small hutch too.

Looks great and awesome job using just resawed and recycled materials. Hope it helps to get some of that clutter under control.

Yeah, this piece looks very well made! You are too cool for school. Unless it’s wood school.

Beautiful job!

And I love the design details – groove above the drawer, squares on the sides.

Your reference to iron and aluminium took me back to school and Valency tables, with the remembered mnemonic ‘AlFeNic’ for common elements which had a valency of 3. However, checking on the web, my memory must be faulty – no surprise there!

I love the proportions. Very nice detailing as well. Adding the tiles was a great idea.
