This was one of my first ever woodworking projects. It is solid ash with Walnut drawer handles and Pegs. The Desk has since been sent to Sweden with a friend.

It looks like a very nice desk. It’s hard to see if you inlaid walnut on the back or that is a decorative cutout. I like the portions and tapered legs. Nice job!

This was made in about 1980/1981. We took a couple of Polaroid shots that laid around for years. The lady it was made for moved back to Sweden and took it with her. Fortunately I happen to scan in a copy of each when scanning was not so good yet. I just by accident found them yesterday. The solid walnut pins in the back are hand lathed to size and pin the legs to the body. The pins stand out proud about 3/8’s inch and are round knobs. The walnut handles in the front of each drawer were cut on a band saw and sanded. They stand out so it is comfortable to pull open the drawers. The big drawer in front is sized to comfortably house artist’s drawing paper. The drawers are for various pens and pencils. This was a work of love and for a Industrial arts class in college. They have since removed wood working from the industrial arts department and High schools no longer seem to offer woodworking classes either. I greatly appreciate your comments.
