I see these desks in antique stores all the time, most with turned legs. Here’s my tapered leg version in walnut.

Good job SD. Looks like you could be producing those as replicas for the antique shops!

VERY nice and look at the warm colour where the light is reflecting. Oh yah… I can hear it now: “Where’s Debbie?” “Where else—she’s sitting at the desk caressing the wood!”

Great piece Sawdust. I really like what you did with the legs. Really beautiful.

Great looking desk. What did you use to taper your legs?

I rough cut tapered legs on the band saw, then clean them up with a couple of passes on the jointer, with the blades set to take no more than a 1/32”. It is the easiest way I have found to do tapered legs.

i used a Maloof oil mixture on the table. It is hand applied and takes several coats to get a good finish built up, but it is worth it. I especially like it on walnut and cherry pieces.
