So this is my first piece of furniture. It is also my first LJ project post. I have been a LJ lurker for a year or so. I really enjoy the ideas and talent on display.
This desk was designed to be the proper height for my 4’11” wife to stand and write; that is why it looks a bit short. The base is built from some left over sapele scraps from a door manufacturer. The top is ambrosia maple. I did not take the time to match the wood patterns on the top. There are several things I would do different, but I think most of us have great hind-site. It has 4 height adjustments on the table top. I based the design off of a table that writer Steven James had. While I see all of the flaws,Duh,my wife loves it. It seems to match the office that I built for her to write in.
More posts to come…hopefully
