This is a desk I made for my grandson Drew. I had some help from my friend and fellow LJ Steven Mines who turned the legs from the stock I gave him. He turned them left and right kind of a nice touch. I also copied an Idea of the PO Box from LJ Jim he said sure go for it. The desk is made from genuine Mahogany, the drawer bottoms are Karelian Birch veneer Dovetails, Finger joints, Double tennons. The tambour is made with a bit from Larry Bird no canvas needed just solid wood. My grandson has seen and he loves it. I’m sure he will cherish it forever. I used four coats of Shellac & five coats of Lacquer on the Legs and four coats of Shellac & five coats of Varnish on the top. Sprayed with HVLP Fuji using target water based products.
