Ivé not posted in a few weeks but have been sidelined by summer busy-ness. This little desk is cherry and is loosely based on the desk shown in the OCT,2010 Woodsmith mag. It was built specifically for our kitchen per my Wife’s request. It is built 95% with Dowelmax and it is as strong as they come, in my humble opinion. Thanks for checking it out!..........;-J (You can find this desk and plans by searching the magazine by date on the internet.) Also check out the Dowelmax, it is expensive and worth it.
