My girlfriend said she needed a small desk for her computer. I said I’ll have one done in four hours. It’s cherry, with glazed bullnose skirt, tapered legs, and minwax early american stain.

Did it actually take you only 4 hours?

Maybe 3 to 4 hrs yeah, tables are pretty easy to do, I mean it’s only the top, the skirt, and the legs, glue up what you need, which with cherry should be ready to work in 30 min. Plane/sand down top, legs, and skirt, 20 min. Shape edges; 20 min. Assemple; 30 min. Finish 45min. The rest of the time I just kinda looked at it and thought of what I should make it look like.
