This is a little project I just completed for my better half. She wanted to be able to stand up and type as she was entering information. It was made form some nice Cherry that I had milled and dried in my solar kiln. It’s nice to know that this used to be a tree no farther than a mile from my house. Now all of the girls in her office want a set of these simple boxes. Please let me know what you think.

Nice design for a flexible solution. Have you considered adding a finish? The color on that cherry would really stand out then.

Put a Tung oil finish on it. It turned out well. Thanks for the comment.

Looks like you put the “silks on a hog” with the beautiful cherry sitting on the laminate desk.
