It would be nice if you could show more than just the handle. :-)

I would if this program would load all my pictures
it is now ten minutes since I tried to up load more
oh well I have too sleep sometime
would rather be in the wood shop and not this computer trying to wait for pictures to up load…....

Good looking desk Bruce. I really like the drawer pulls, really interesting. I also like the treatment on the drawer faces – is that pinned box joints?

yes the box joints are pinned with screws hidden behind the ebony plugs.
this is a Greene and Greene style they are also proud.
my mistake was not to sand them prior to their being pinned. learned for the next project.

Hi Bruce,

That came out really nice. How did you do the drawer face joints? that part of my project is coming up soon and I am mulling over how to do the finger joinery. I hate making jigs for one off’s and I am considering doing them with my little back saw (by hand).

Nice desk Bruce – the G & G details take a little more time but they sure do give a piece character.

Are any of you G & G fans going to Craftsman Weekend next month? We’ll be there.
