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

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!
