Woodworker: Alton BowmanBowman sees the French period furniture he often restores as his teachers, because of the woodworking techniques he learns while refurbishing them. Many of the techniques, such as veneering, inlay, and dovetails, are in this rosewood writing desk (24 in. deep by 36 in. wide by 30 in. tall). The finish is 15 coats of shellac with 10 coats of lacquer for added protection.
Design or Plan used: Not specified
