i made this desk for a client. Made of solid walnut and birds-eye maple, finished with a tung oil and varnish mix with a wax topcoat. All drawers are solid wood and dovetailed all around, and run on wood slides. this desk was fun to build and was pretty straight forward.

I’m sure your client was pleased with the desk. Maybe straight forward to build, but you did it well.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

I really like the breadboard style top. That definitely takes it up a notch.

Great table. I also like the double-breadboard of the middle stile and the great looking grain continuity of the top.
