This Desk is for Lovie Cheryls Christmas present., Santa got it done in 53 man hours.

Its my Original Design and I wanted to do something neat with the legs, I made the A frame type legs and tied them into each other at the back with a doweled 3×1 stringer.

The unit is made of Solid pine 3×1 laminated together for panels and the top shelf 3×1/2 laminated together.
The drawers are nice and spacious from 1/2 inch ply and laminated 3×1 drawer fronts.
My usual Dowel and glue type construction throughout. Lots of Dowels actually. Oh, and as usual I,m never worried about showing off a bit of end grain.

Finished with Oil Based Natural color Decking Oil to give good durability on the very soft pine wood.

There is a Blog here on some of the construction techniques.

Thanks for reading and taking a look.

Kind Regards
Anthony

Very nice Anthony! I love your design and the A frame legs are a nice touch! I was thinking about a chair to match maybe for a later gift. A desk pad would be a nice addition! Oh! Have you though about adding built in power outlets? Just some thoughts but all and all you did a great job on this desk! Loved the blog too!

I have to say the most intriguing part of your fine looking desk is the legs. The open sections make the rest of the desk look like it is suspended from them, rather than the usual desk that looks like a big box. As always, nicely done.

Nice job antman.

Are those baubles a souped up abacus and the computer come next Christmas?
