Shaker desk made from hard maple. Mortise and Tenon joinery to attach aprons and lower supports to legs. Upper section is separate structure, doweled to desktop. Two small drawers on the left and one big drawer on the right with false fronts to make it look even with the left. I started it in WA, then moved to KS and finished it. Excellent computer desk or to plan my next project.

Great looking Desk. I love the Shaker Style, it has a timeless look and functionality. Did you make the knobs? I like the idea of making the right drawer front the way you did to keep it symmetrical.

Very nicely executed and pleasing to the eye. Best wishes on accomplishing your goal of making furniture for your entire house—looks like you’re on your way.
