My son asked me to build him a computer desk. He gave me latitude for the design except for the length, depth, and height. I know that he would be adding a computer monitor bar and he wanted power and USB grommets installed in the top. Material: Top: 13/16 hard maple. Base: 1 x 2 cherry. Drawer: 5/8 hard maple Base construction: Front legs are cherry bent lamination with 14 degree cant. Drawer has box joint construction. Finish: Base has one coat BLO, one coat 1 ½ # shellac, one coat gel stain, and another coat 1 ½# shellac. Overall, everything has two coats pre-cat lacquer. I wanted the desk to be and to appear to be light weight. I know there will be a structural issue if someone sits on the desk top. I want the desk top to have a floating surface appearance, the base to have curves & angles; and the drawer to have a clean look. The inner form radius for the bent lamination was 7 7/8. The base joinery is M&T. Each joint was doweled with two ¼ dowels. Thanks for looking. Danl
