Modern Writers Desk

In 8 detailed videos watch as Jon Peters teaches you [step-by-step] how to build a modern writers desk. This mid-century modern desk is built with Baltic birch plywood to give it more substance and weight. The veneer is quarter-sawn oak and highly figured white oak for the drawer fronts. The desk is finished with clear spray lacquer, which really makes the character of the white oak pop.

With a total run time of 53 minutes, inside this series, you will learn how to cut and assemble the sides, back, and drawers, the prep and application of the veneer, and of course how to spray the lacquer to get the clean finish that really brings the design together. Follow along and learn everything you need to know to make this project your next woodworking success.
