Old Projects #6: Slant Top Desk

12-21-2020 08:34 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This is a desk I built. The legs are store bought and biscuited into the frame. The trim on top prevents things from falling off and adds a nice visua; touhc. The open slots are big enough to hold 8-1/2” x 11” sheets. Its built from cheap pine stained with … some dark color stain. Slant top opens with piano hinge. Top detail shows pencil groove. Apron bead is sorta my style mark. I put it on lots of projects just because. Picture stand to left is another pr...

Building a Desk With My Little Brother

10-14-2020 07:26 PM by PeteCollin | 1 comment »

Hello All,Last Thanksgiving my brother John visited, during which time we made a cutting board together. He enjoyed it, and we made plans to get together and do another, more ambitious build. Last week we did a start-to-finish build of a breakapart student desk.It was one of Matthias Wandel’s free plan designs. Seemed perfect because John drove out from Chicago in his little compact car. I selected and planed some of the wood beforehand just to give us a prayer of finishing the proj...

Slant Top Desk Update - Jewelry

10-02-2020 07:27 PM by MPython | 2 comments »

I’ve been working on this desk for a long time and I’ve posted bits and pieces of the process here along the way. I’ve still got a long way to go, but it’s beginning to look like a desk and I’m getting excited about it. Yesterday and last night I drilled for and mounted the drawer pulls. It really brought the desk alive and a smile to my face. It’s only temporary. I’ve not finished the drawers but it was easier to drill the mounting holes at this ...

Making a Desk #1: Milling and Joinery

02-20-2018 10:24 PM by Jerome | 3 comments »

This is a blog of a desk that I am in the process of making. I have never made a desk, and the closest price of furniture that I made was my built-in cabinets for my living room. That’s was made of whatever quality materials that I could find and I learned a lot. Basically my table saw, miter saw were the only tools that I used. This one is different. It is all solid Cherry with the exception of the drawer bottoms and cabinet sides. This one is a particularly significant because it ...

Mission-style mahogany desk #1: A view of the legs and progress on the desktop

11-17-2017 07:56 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

I talked about this project in my recent blog, and thought I’d give a shot at actually trying to blog a build; something that I’m not strong at because I don’t always think to take pictures of things while I’m doing the work, and the pictures REALLY help visualize whatever’s gong on in the shop. As always, comments, suggestions, or witty reparte’ are always welcome. Below is a snapshot of my ongoing sketchup-work-in-progress plans for the mission-style d...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #8: Finishing up the Odds and Ends

10-21-2017 01:19 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

Even with all of the “woodworking” complete there were still a fair number of things that needed to be finished. Generally, I keep a “To Do” list throughout the project to keep track of what needs to be done and in what order. At the end of the project, I start a new list for “Finishing”. Obviously, it includes the sanding, staining, finish, and wax. But the list also includes other things that need to be completed for the project to be “finished&...
