Three-Wood Desk & Chair

This reader’s project skillfully combines three different species without sacrificing the pieces’ cohesive looks.

This is a desk and chair I recently made for my granddaughter that now has a place to do her homework. It’s made from leftover oak, maple, and walnut. The top is made from walnut plywood left from a dining table project and quarter-sawn oak edging remaining from a rocking chair project. The front chair legs are made from a piece of 100-year-old oak beam salvaged from a barn demolition. Does this make it a “green” project?

Sometimes your best work for what you make for yourself…

This is a desk I built for our home. I build big custom furniture for clients and I wanted something great for my own house. We built our home a few years ago, and I had an office space that was perfect for a nice desk. The wood is alder, with walnut inserts on the doors. I design and carve all the artwork.
