Project Information

This project was completed 3 or 4 years ago, for my oldest granddaughter. All cherry, no secondary woods as is traditional to 17th & 18th century construction. This desk is a modified version of Glenn Huey's Slant-lid Desk on Frame, from his book "Building Fine Furniture". The hardware cost almost as much as the wood for this project. Finish is just General Finish's Arm-R-Seal.
Thanks for looking,

wow, really nice work Tom, that period correct hardware is a killer though… for the prices they get, should come and build it for me.. Somebody on LJ's should start hammering out hardware, they would make a killing selling just to us folks and not have to sell it for an arm and a leg and three fingers… great job.. keep em coming you do nice work..
