My wife’s friend asked me to build her husband a desk. He liked the Night Stand I built my mother in-law and liked that style. I used Hard maple,maple plywood and ash for the drawers. I finished it with General Finishes Jav Gel Stain. I really don’t care to cover up maple with a dark stain but thats what he likes. It seemed like it took all summer but I’am glad I finished and dropped it off this past Sept. I made one huge mistake, I cut the top wrong, and had to re build it, that was $180.00 mistake.
