This is a desk my son asked me to make for him. I don’t have a lot of experience but it came out rather good. Both of us are very happy. I hope he will enjoy it for many years to come.

Thank you all!
Means a lot for my confidence coming from experienced woodworkers.
Maybe I will let the wife move my bed down to the shop in the basement. Lol

That’s a great looking desk – making rool tops are a real chore (maybe just for me) : )

Great looking desk. Job well done. Lots of space in the drawers from the looks of it.

Now that you ARE experienced, what’s next?

The roll top is a tough act to follow.

Very well done, congratulations to both you and your son.

An heirloom piece without question.
