Thats fantastic, excellent craftsmanship.
Wow! Beatiful choice of wood too.
what's the dove tails??
The dovetails refer to the way the pieces of wood are joined. See the next to last photo. Look for the dove tails.
"Dove Tails": A new Genetic Hackle that is the new essential fly material. Also nearly impossible to obtain because every teenage girl (i.e. my grand daughters) has one stuck in their hair for $20 a feather.
Takoda, this is an amazing wood work of art. Thanks for sharing, now STOCK IT UP!
A work of art. Thanks for sharing and making me jealous
Nice piece of work. I always admire good woodworking as my dad was a professional woodworker in building and finishing fine furnature.
Takoda great hand tool woodworking! Did you do all the tooling by hand? You didn't get much fishing in while building your desk. Work like that doesn't go quickly does it. I would like to build one for myself when I retire this year. I really miss working with my hand tools.
That is a thing of beauty, a shame that it'll most likely soon be covered in feathers, sparkly bits, and all kinds of furs
How $$$ did the material all cost?
Very Nice, You have a very good gift!
Most of the wood is stuff that I have been given. I'd say there is about $800 worth of wood in this piece.
I don't do it all by hand but all of the dovetails are done by hand and I did a lot of handplaning on this project because it has several wide boards.
Thanks for all of the feedback. I'm hoping to start selling furniture next winter.
nice detail...love the bottom drawer...cut outta the same piece....sweet
Mind me asking what type of wood and finish you used for the actual desk surface?
