A friend wanted me to use a shelf part she had to make a quick desk for her computer. I had some mahogany billet material I’d acquired from Pier 6 here in Portland. Wanted a bit of practice doing rounded joints for a later project. I did not spend too much time on this – it was mostly a practice project with the benefit of helping a friend. She wanted a knock-down solution so I used a through tenon with a removable peg. I had a bunch of leg-levelers left over from a shop project so I used those as well.

By the way- why is it so difficult to upload photos on this site? I cant seem to get any but this one to load and I know for a fact that they are less than the required max of 5mb. Jeese…

Way cool project. You make it sound too easy.

From what I see you made two leg frames a brace and a top .
Would like to know how you made the frame joinery .
As to uploading pics I re size all of them to 800×460 or about that. and have no problems .
