Executive desk

This is another piece from my RSG project. This is an executive desk that is 72”w x 42”d x 30”h. The back and the two sides are a wainscot style panel. The front side had a file drawer and two box drawers on one side. The other side of the pedestal had two file drawers. It also had a pencil drawer in the center.

The top was made from maple plywood with a 2 ¼” solid wood edging around it. The edging was mitered at the corners. I used biscuits to align the edge with the plywood and to give it extra support. I also used pocket holes to security fasten it together.

This went in the room with the two lateral files/armoires with the connecting desk.

Here are some building pictures of the top:
Hand cutting the pocket with a keig jig.
Putting down a couple layers of tape to space up the biscuit cuts.

Just to let you know, I’m just playing catch-up on my posting. I’m not really working. Here is a picture of where I am, just to make you jealous that I’m not sweating in the shop.

Chris,

Beautiful office suite, and beautiful family! But, you should feel guilty that you’re not sweating in your shop ;^D

Hi Chris;

This is a fine looking addition to the other “stuff” you made for this client.

Great job.

As far as sweating in the shop, what no A/C? (Although I do see the advantage of being where you are).

Nice looking family.

Lee
