Walnut writing desk, with leather top.

This desk was for a customer in NYC. I was never able to see it finished, nor with the leather installed in the recess in the top. Sigh! The design was by John Sammons, of Fairfax and Sammons, of London, New York, and Miami. It was a fun little piece to build. There is a lot going on there.

Wow, that is beautiful! I love it.

Very nice.

It’s a shame you did not see it finished. It must look exquisite with finish and the leather top.

Sigh! We, too, would love to see it finished. You did a wonderful job on all the details. Great workmanship!

Wow, you must find a way to get a look at the finished table.

How did you do the big radius on the four corners so evenly? Do you have a jig or do you just saw them close and file them in where you want?

I cut the corners on a bandsaw, I only had a finish tolerance of .062. So cutting square and tight to the line was critical. I only needed sand paper to fare them in. That’s the long and short of it Mudflap!

Excellent build and a beautiful desk.
