Build a White Oak or Walnut Writing Desk with Mike Pekovich

Mike Pekovich A and C Desk 800Working from home seems to have caught on in the last year or so. Because of that, work space in many homes is at a premium. Just about any home can benefit from a nice little desk that can be tucked away when not in use and it compliments just about any room style. This light and lively desk - which you can make in either 1/4 sawn white oak or walnut, does away with the banks of drawers in a traditional desk and instead provides a wide open base highlighted by subtly tapered legs and through mortise-and-tenon construction. The desk is topped with a small box of drawers perfectly sized for pens and pencils, bills, chargers and thumb drives, as well as space for a nice set of stationary. You will learn some great furniture making techniques and spend a week doing what you love. The desk is approximately  37" long X 23" deep X 29" high.  Mike is the editor & Art Director for Fine Woodworking Magazine and has recently published his second book Foundations of Woodworking, Taunton Press. Join Mike Pekovich in this six-day class and come away with a nice addition to your home along with some great skills! Tuition: $945.00 plus materials.
