I needed a new desk for the bedroom. The other was just too small. This table is fashioned after a dining table I built for my daughter. I will post pics of it later. The desk was built using Banak ( A mahogany substitute), purple heart for the inlay trim, and oak plywood. The most interesting part of this table is the bent laminations. They were created by slicing 11, 1/8” strips 30” long to create a 1 1/2×1 1/2 structure and gluing them together in a from using Unibond 800, a 2 part urea-formaldehyde glue. The glue is slightly tan colored so no glue lines show up.
The finish consists of 3 coats of water based Amber shellac and several coats of water based lacquer. These were applied with a HVLP spray gun.
