This is my first attempt at woodworking. This desk is made of pine and accented by flat black paint. The inspiration came from several Lumberjocks here. Thanks to all who helped by providing critique and insight. Cheers.

Thanks Don! I’m a real noob at woodworking. I tried my best to keep it simple with my limited experience and tools available to me. Thanks for your encouragement.

Thanks Mr. Kiefer. I will be emailing you soon about some jigs I saw on your page. You have some amazing work! WorkerinWood…We share a military background. I decided to start woodworking for two major reasons: 1. Can’t afford much furniture during these hard times and 2. Needed a hobby during my shore duty. My next project will be something in Mahogany since I picked up a few board feet from a friend’s dad. They say it’s South American but what do I know other than it looks great! Haa..ha. Mr. Miles, you’re absolutely correct! I am so tempted to make another for my lil stepdaughter. It’ll keep her “collections” in one place. Thanks all. I really appreciate feeling part of the sawdust making family! -Paul

I agree with the others; does not look like a first project to me. Very nice work.

@Rose -Aw thanks Mrs. Rose…It actually was and I keep finding areas of improvement daily. I want to eventually get my hands on a router or some cheap chisels and create a dado along the sides of the draw. This will enable me to place a bearing slide inside and allow them to slide freely. Until then, they are just held in place by a u-shaped cradle underneath. Thanks for the kind words. Now, I must scour your page for some good ideas and advice… :)
