I made this desk out of Oak. It has two shallow drawers and large indent in front to hold stuff.

This is truly a piece of art. The carving is impeccable and the wood is beautiful. Your style is highly elegant. Very creative.

Awesome desk, it is truely stunning in design and craftsmanship. Love the legs front and rear and the bent wood artwork at the back between the bottom rail and the underside of the desk. Plus all the work put into the desk top just makes for an awesome build…Great job.

Really beautiful desk! Tell us a little more about the build. Are the legs carved or Legacy-milled or similar? What was the inspiration for the design? We’re certain your wife is delighted. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks a lot for all the complements. Basically, I decided to make this table and started to think about what the top should look like and it went from there. Along the way, whatever comes to mind goes into the project. I purchased this contraption from Sears about 25 years ago that uses a router to make the legs. Unfortunately, they stopped making this machine 10 or 15 years ago and I have not been able to find the bit that creates the front leg pattern; Sears stopped making that as well. So, I keep sharpening the one I have and probably need to go to a machine shop and see if they can make me one before the one I have becomes hard to copy. I think it is called butterfly bit. Thanks again for the comments.

mrjinx007, create a thread on someone might be able to help as another supplier might have the bit.

Thanks Knothead62,
The closest I’ve come across is this one. However, the bit I have amost looks like a half upside down heart shape.
