After much inspiration from the good people here I finally decided to build something. I wanted a little desk that could fit in a particular space for my computer and I wanted to be able to use it as a hall table or something similar when i move. This is what I came out with. Thanks for all the help. —Jeremy

Beautiful piece of furniture, it came out great. Walnut has turned into my favorite wood. Nice touch having the Lumberjocks home page on your PC screen in the photo too!

What did you finish it with? Nice work, I love the grain. You’ll enjoy your computer even more now each time you sit down to use it.

Walnut is my favorite, too! I just now unloaded 2 natural edge 8/4 slabs and 2 4/4 boards almost 20” wide!!!

This table has beautiful grain. I noticed that the frame goes on 3 sides. My first thought was, “OH NO!” thinking you’d completely framed the tabletop. How did you attach the sides? Are they a mitered bread board joint? I was wondering how you accounted for the wood movement in the top.

Really beautiful. Thanks for sharing it!
