I made this for my Mom for Christmas last year. She loved it. Making the pigeon holes just about drove me crazy though.

Great job on the desk. Im with ya on the pigeon holes. I built one for my son a couple years ago for Christmas and was of the same opinion on the pigeon holes.

Fantastic job! The desk is well dimensioned and look fantastic!

It’s always the details that take the longest – I would gladly make fireplace surrounds all day long if it weren’t for all that trim work! ;-)

Well done Sir!
