I built this writing table for a neighbor awhile back totally out of persimmon. The tree was harvested five years ago and sliced up on my sawmill. Stickered and air dried. I’m glad I cut the lumber thick because there wasn’t a straight board in the rack. I did a bunch of planing by machine and by hand to complete the cut list. The top dimensions are 24”w x 54”l x 29”h. Side slats were M/T, the base was butt jointed with glue and screws. The recessed screws were plugged. The top was secured with buttons. Many coats of BLO/mineral spirit mix for the finish.
