I made this desk in curly cherry for a Major. This was a simple and fun project.

Curly cherry is beautiful. Great job! You say it was “simple” in your desc. but it looks like you put a lot of hard work into your project.

Simple is an understatement. Fantastic is a better description. Very well done.

Thank you for your comments. It is simple looking but 10% of the elements took 90% of the time. (-:

A beautiful desk. The design may have been simple but the craftsmanship is very precise. That curly cherry is really special!

Beautiful desk Jose, I like the dove tailing on the hutch, did you do them by hand or router. I am a power tool woodworker myself not too good with hand tools…...keep up the great work.
