Walnut and Lacewood Desk Organizers

About 5 years ago I made a desk organizer for a Sawdust Chronicles contest. It was made from big box store pine and stained dark walnut. Frankly, it was a pretty poor effort. Looking at it was a daily reminder of how far I’ve come as a woodworker. So, I set out to rebuild it out of actual walnut. This one has hand cut dovetails throughout and the fit and finish is lightyears better than the one it replaced. I also made a letter tray from walnut and lacewood to replace a plastic one. The design is from Woodsmith.

As always, thanks for looking.

looks real nice and inviting to be touched/used – always a good indicator.

Nice work Cory. I like them both a lot, but particularly like the letter tray. Nice, simple and elegant.

Great job,

Garry

Beautifully done Corey. I have been woodworking for a year and find that each piece I build gets just a bit better. It’s inspirational to find what 5 years may bring. I know there are some things that I will want to do again as my skills improve.

They look great and well crafted especially the joinery. They will complete anyone’s desk with those essential builds.
