This is a desk my wife picked up at a moving sell from one of he friends for $10 bucks. Se asked me several times about refinishing it,I never seemed to have time. So one weekend that I had to work she took it into the shop and started sanding on it. Then she never seemed to have time to get back out to the shop to finish it. How many of yall think she knew what she was doing ? Since my shop is rather small I had to finish it to get it out of my way. The wood looked and smelt like Douglas fir Plywood. I stained with minwax Early American and three coats of spray on poly So, here it is Thanks for looking .
