Modern Cherry Desk

This custom desk made, entirely of solid cherry lumber, is designed with functionality and simplistic storage in mind. It's top is a good size for spreading out daily tasks such as writing, paying bills, or computer work.

The boards in the top are selected and organized to show off the best grain in the available boards.

The drawer fronts are cut from a single board so that the grain flows across from end to end, and the finger pulls make getting into them very easy.
Half-blind dovetails hold them to the drawer boxes that are sized practically for notebooks and the like. The sides extend further back into the desk, allowing for full-extension without ball bearing slides.

The supports are slim but strong due to the tight fitting mortise and tenon construction, and there is plenty of legroom beneath.
