This is a desk I made for myself out of a really nice pice of quilted maple I was lucky enough to get a few years ago. On the top, the maple is framed by Bubinga with an wenga inlay between the two woods. The legs are Bubinga with wenga inlays that match those on the aprons. The bottom two inches of the legs are wenga also. So far there is only one coat of tongue oil on the pice. I will probably put at least four more on, and a good coat of wax. Unfortunately the retractable keyboard tray I ordered, is on back order….Booo….So once that arrives and I get the finish done I’ll post some proper pictures. I just could not wait to share this. This was by far my most ambitious pice to day. It was my first experience with cutting my own veneerers and laminating. I learned a great deal working on this pice, and all said and done I am very pleased with the results.
On a side note…some people might consider this a waist, but the bottom of the top, and the insides of the aprons are also quilted maple…. I just thought it was the right thing to do. It really gives the pice a nice sense of quality workmanship.
All critiques and comments are welcome….Thanks for viewing,
