OLD ENGLISH FARMHOUSE WRITING DESK

Submitted by kwildman on Mon, 10/21/2019 - 11:59

I modified the Small Old English Style Farmhouse Dining Table plan to build a writing desk.   

I used five 1x6 boards for the top for a width of 27.5 inches.   I made my desk 56 inches in length.  I put the drawer on the long side like a pencil drawer.   I did use the legs that Ana recommended in the plan.   

I watched the video Ana posted on how to make the drawers for this table and it was so helpful.  I just made it like Ana did in the video but on the long side instead of the short ends.

I love how it turned out.  I used Watco dark walnut danish oil and Minwax dark wax for the finish.
