I built This desk & bookcase a few years ago, for a lady at the church I was attending. When considering me for the
project I was asked by the customer why she should pick me over another man. I told her she would have to decide
if she wanted a carpenter or a furniture maker to build these pcs. for her.
She seemed happy with her decision when I delivered the completed desk & bookcase to her
These pcs. were built of soft maple, with a beaded face frame. The face frame was assembled with haunch joints, the bead was not applied after the face frame was assembled. The glass in the doors is 1/4” plate glass set in the panel groove of the doors, with space balls used around the glass to keep it from rattling. The finish started with 2 coats of vinyl sanding sealer, followed by 2 coats of off white lacquer. I then dry brushed a glaze for highlights and finished with one more clear coat of lacquer.
Thank you for looking, Todd
