You did a wonderful job on that desk. In fact I need a computer desk for myself. That looks like a really nice project. Congratulations.

First thing I thought was a Cherry desk, then to find out it is poplar with a shellac finish…. Well Done…...

Thats a great looking desk. I didnt know that shellac could make poplar look so good. Is there any stain on it or just amber shellac?
