I didn’t know I needed a new desk for my home office, that is until my wife told me i did. So here is what i come up with. I know it’s simple but it fits the bill. This is Cypress that was cut on our woodmizer and dried in our kiln.
Legs are mortise and tenon and drawer used commerical drawer full extension slides.

Thanks for looking

Simply beautiful. I love the grain and it’s beauty. Thanks for sharing.

The grain is striking. Just like the vanity you recently posted, you obviously paid attention to the board selection and orientation. Excellent work!

BTW…in the last picture, I can’t help but notice what appears to be a noose. Hmmm… :)

Nice work on the desk, especially keeping the grain consistent all across the apron and drawer. Slick!

Very nice writing desk! I’ve always liked this type of desk, as opposed to a big, clunky desk with drawers.

The writing desk is much more elegant, and your’s is a great example!

I like it. The desk, not the noose….

Very nice design. Like the wood grain. I thought the noose was for unruly customers :>)

Very nice table and grain continuity across the front : )

Looks super. You can’t do any better than going from tree to finished project.

Cypress is a beautiful and underutilized wood. Great job!
