Here is an L-shaped desk I made for our home office. I wanted to try something different in terms of material and design so I went with white ash and gave it a mid-century modern flair. All components with the exception of the drawer boxes and drawer pulls are solid ash. The boxes are made of ply and the pulls from walnut. I used rabbets to join the pedestal sides and tops and the feet are attached with through mortises. The feet are four sided tapers at a 30 degree angle and protrude our from under the pedestals a half inch. Overall this project was more of an undertaking than I had envisioned and I’m not totally in love with it in terms of design or material. Overall a great learning experience, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m making another desk in a few years. Any questions, comments or critiques are always welcome. Thanks for looking.

Very cool design. Great looking finish. I really like the idea of the feet. I’m really tall so anything that adds elevation to a desk like that is great in my eyes! Thanks for sharing.
