Finished another desk before visiting the kids for the holiday season. I also had the opportunity to have better photos taken of it for proper documentation.

I changed the drawer pulls on this piece by making it wider. I also removed the drawer pulls for the secret drawers underneath.
Woods used:

top: balayong
breadboards: molave
drawer fronts; molave
drawer pulls: kamagong
legs ipil:
stretchers: molave and narra

All dowels are raised and rounded off. All woods used are reclaimed as with all my projects.

Have a great weekend guys!

Merry Christmas!!!

LOL! The pieces you make are an impression to behold, for which I have no words. Yep me, no words, I’m speechless.

Except, have a great time and hug those sweeties! Merry Christmas!

I had to favorite this piece to look at it later, bet I will see new things I missed the first time, it’s such an impressive piece of furniture and art. It feels like hobbits would be around it to me. Creative !

Wow, missed some details first time through that’s for sure, second time, third, wow.

This desk is solid, dynamic and almost nautical in a way. It seems to have history beyond it’s years and has a story to tell. I would expect to see it in a museum with a docent talking to a wide-eyed audience about the documents that were signed on this very desk. It is so cool…......
Even more wonderful is that Benji is back. This makes my heart beat a little stronger. After the devastation over there, I wondered if your light would be dimmed, but it is shining like a beacon. That is such a wonderful thing.
Still I send my most sincere condolences for the tragic events in your Homeland. Take care my friend.
