This is my first project post. I am more than willing to accept advice from you more experienced wood workers.
Most of my work, including this desk, is built out of neccessity. So, if you have any tips on giving a project like this a little more flare, bring it on.
The majority of the wood that I’m building this desk with is pine and fir recycled from the remodeling of my house.My intention is to paint it white after construction(I have dark walls in my office so I want to lighten the room by keeping the furniture light). After spending the last 17 years building with new growth SPF, working with this older stuff (40-50 years) is a dream.
The end panels are simple tongue and groove.I also have the drawer runners and facing material prepared(not pictured). Although, I am not happy with my face frame design, specifically the joinery. My goal was to maximize the amount of usable drawer space, but I fear the rails may not have enough support to last.
I will post more images as I proceed.
