Project Information

This Desk on Frame was started at Lonnies Bird's School in Dandridge, TN. His plans orriginally called for a frame to have tapered legs and the desk was drawn up based on a period MA desk. I wanted to have cabriole legs so, with Lonnie's help, I redesigned the frame. I used trifed feet so now I call it a Pennsylvania desk.

This project was a load of fun. The gallery was completed at Lonnie's as part of a one week class. This class has become one of his most popular offerings. I recommend it.

Please, don't look too close at my fans. They are pretty ragged. But, I had a blast working on them.

Happy woodworking!

Life (woodworking) is a journey, enjoy the ride. If everything came out perfect, what would we work on then?!
