As my wife is a writer, it came to my [our] attention that she currently does not have a desk for writing, or a desk at all for that matter. I set out to remedy that problem.

For all writer’s must have a place to write.

I returned to the shop and put the new planer to the test, reworking some old oak tongue and groove flooring we had. It was the perfect length and width for this project.

I glued the top, and cut mortise and tenons for the sides and legs. I also made a taper jig to get a nice soft taper for the legs. The drawer was also a fun as I tried something I had not done before: the half-blind dovetail, by hand. It came out out a little rough but is nice, and is definitely a strong joint.

So now that she has a desk… let the writing begin. Here’s to her first novel, book of poetry, short story or whatever else her mind dreams!
