Project Information

My teenager needed a desk to work on homework - I had an assortment of wood lying around so I made this up as I went; both design and which wood to use for which part. End result was black walnut for the breadboards and drawer front, quartersawn oak for the top, and mahoghany for the skirt and legs. Drawer front folds down so the computer keyboard and mouse can be accessed when the drawer is pulled out but concealed when it is closed. Not much time spent on making/finishing 'cuz I know it will get "used" a lot…

Very nice design and execution. I like the wood contrasts. I hope you are right and it gets many, many hours of use - doing homework.
