Mahogany Writing Desk
I had been pondering a desk-design for over a year. It had to be timeless and elegant. When I saw Chris gouchnour´s design in FWW I knew I could do something with it. I had a wide board of Mahogany from a veneer factory in the workshop, which I knew would one day become part of a desk. The board was too narrow for the size desk I wanted (it is bigger than in Gochnour´s plan) so I added cherry to complement it. The challenge in this project were the legs and the drawers. The drawer pulls are made of wenge. The drawer dovetails are handcut.
The finish of the desk-top was done by spraygun, the rest was treated with three coats of shellac.
Having to do office work takes on a whole new dimension when being able to work at a desk like this one.
Rounded drawers were a challenge.
