This is my first project since high school shop class 25 years ago. The desk is constructed from maple plywood and solid maple. I have since added a keyboard drawer. It is nice to start woodworking again.

This is a nice piece. I am glad to see that you are back in the shop making sawdust. Woodworking should come with a Surgeon General’s warning that it can be addictive.

Hopefully it will not be another 25 years before you post another piece.

Welcome to Lumber Jock’s.
That is a very nice set of pieces to start out with. Look like your daughter puts them to good to use.

I did it!!!!! I can’t believe I sat here this long but it became an obsession with me that I was going to look at every piece you have posted, Unbelievable work that you do my friend, Now if I can just get up and walk my butt and legs fell asleep. L.O.L.
