Hi everyone
Just finished these little reproduction school desks for a client for her granddaughters dolls
Made from Mahogany and using mortice and tenon construction. The business card shows the scale.

Very nice .

But this brings back memories of when I was a youngster in school and felt LEFT out when I had to use one made for a “righty”

If I was only a skilled woodworker back then I would of built one for me!

But that’s all dust under the table saw now! LOL!!

Maybe this will inspire you to make one for a leffty!

Great work, Love the wood choice! While in High School in advanced woodworking class we made old fashion desks for Greenfield Village just like this.It was a fun project.

Some little girl is going to be very happy!

Very cool! I have an old “leftie” version I picked up at an antique shop several years ago. This inspires me to restore that thing, as it has separated at many glue joints and shows its age. Well done!
