Needed a desk, but wanted a simple, clean design. Combined maple slab with cherry legs and wenge stretchers. Finished with 6 coats of tung oil and 3 coats of wipe on poly.

That’s just gorgeous!
I’ve never worked with Wenge, I take it, by
Your use, that it’s a very tough wood?
Thanks for sharing your desk, it’s a beautiful piece!

Thanks guys! Steve, wenge is very tough to work with; very hard and prone to splintering and tear out.
