This is a maple desk and chest with solid tops and fronts and maple plywood sides. The slides are Blum 563h. This time I tried Varathane natural that claims to dry in a hour. It worked very well. Using that and polycrylic satin made my finish time go much faster. I wet sand with 600 grit between coats. There is a lot of wire management hidden in the back. I was tired of looking at all of those cables. The top drawer of the chest is for all of the gadgets that need charging. I may build some sort of fabric cover to hide the wireless router that sits on top, and maybe something to organize the tablets. I finally bought a couple of decent hand planes and used those to even the tops after glue up. It took some time but was definitely better than sanding alone. The two Cherry boards were just for fun.
