Woodworker: Lon Schleining

Schleining built this reproduction of a Thomas Jefferson writing desk after seeing the original at the Smithsonian National Museum. This desk is made from plywood-core mahogany veneered panels. Satinwood is used for the front inlay design. The finish is hand-rubbed varnish.
