Desk project- Top
My dad needs a new desk, so I worked up a design and we both started working on it. He has a bunch of walnut from trees on the property that he had cut at the local saw mill and had dried. Started with a 2 1/2” thick piece at 17” wide, which is too big for his planer. After a very brief attempt to level with hand tools, we made a manual 3 axis router sled to surface each side. Took a little less than 1/4” off each side to eliminate the warp.
Sides are smoothed, but kept the natural shape of the edge.
Next up- legs…
looks great! Beautiful colors in that walnut
