This desk is made from red oak veneer plywood and ¾” solid maple. The top come off in 2 pieces and just sits on the 3 cabinets. This was my first try at furniture.

The finish is oil based cherry minwax stain and 4 brushed on coats of polyurethane. I like to stick with what’s available at Lowe’s/Home Depot if possible. Its alot cheaper and easier.
