Hey Keith ?
Thanks for the compliment. I just had the time and had to learned how to post. Looks like you have some very impressive work and nice web site. I see your from Orange county I'm from Tustin before moving to Oregon.
I have always wanted to build one of these! I really like the finish, too often it seems people over-stain projects which look good at the time but in ten or fifteen years the color is out of style and the piece becomes awkward. Clear finish on gorgeous wood never goes out of style though, great choice.
This is awesome, my Dad built me a desk very similar to this but not anywhere near as nice, it was my college desk easy to set up and take apart still use it, as a computer desk but oh boy does it sway, yours is beauty first function after, mine is absolutely sentimental, he wrote me a note on the bottom, but I don't think he intended on me using it for the next 15 years. By the way it was our first stain color vs natural conversation, it's green! Beautiful!
