Here is a desk that took me way too long to build. Its the biggest piece of furniture I’ve made so far. I started with a picture from the internet that my wife found and tried my best to figure out the dimensions. I made a few mistakes to say the least and had some opportunities to practice ways of “hiding” them. Good learning experience.

Looks like you did a lot of things right. Continuous grain through series of drawers is something many people don’t take the time to do, you did good.
