I was getting a haircut a few months back and there was a September 2018 fine woodworking magazine in the waiting room.

I thought the design was cool.

Well, wify has a new desk.

She still has not picked out the leather for the top. I changed the design because I do not have a lathe for spindle legs. I like mine more than the original.

She also did not want a drawer to hide crap…

The width is 48 inches. Lots of room on the desk with a laptop. Also, the frame pieces are 1+3/4 walnut. The thinnest is 1” other than the dividers. The design has a hole for cords for a labtop. I put a surge suppressor with usb charging underneath as well.

Almost done. She can’t decide on the leather color.

I will repost when she decides.

Very nice. I also prefer the straight legs instead of turned ones. Looks a lot more graceful and in line with the rest of the design.

You can buy Naugahyde from a variety of places – but here is one – It is great to mix media’s doing projects. The pictured foot stool used to have material on the seat. But I have since redone it in Naugahyde. The desk is going to be so nice. Can’t wait to see it finished.
