Shaker inspired writing desk
I designed this shaker desk after a photo that i saw. With the size and general shape i changed the general feel to a more contemporary look. I turned the four legs with an off-center taper from the bottom to the top. The taper is sharper on the inside of the desk. The Maple that i used was finished with a clear shellac that i tinted with an antique dye. I then buffed out the sheen with super-fine steel wool and an antiqued tined wax.
