This is a lovely smaller desk (35" L x 25" W x 30" T). Just right for a smaller space but still having ample room for a laptop or just for organizing your thoughts.
Made from butternut taken from a tree that died from blight - two board top (yep, 13" wide boards). Drawer is handdovetailed - sides and bottom made from 1/2" white pine. Bottom of drawer is chamfered to allow for nice fit and a solid bottom.
Frame is attached to legs with hand cut mortise and tenon joints and fixed with walnut pegs. Bottom of frame has 1/2" walnut trim with a beaded edge - wanted to give it a finer look and chose walnut as the grain is very similar to butternut but has darker natural appearance.
Piece finished with three coats of oil/ploy satin for durability, then hand waxed final coat. Knobs are shaker style walnut.
Piece can be shipped but NOT broken down. Local delivery around Minneapolis is free, out to 250 miles I'll deliver for the cost of gas, in a stretch I might be willing to do northern and western suburbs of Chicago. Otherwise it's freight and that's pricey depending on where you live. Contact me for more details, price quoted on this listing is approximate and will be subject to change depending on where you live. Believe me I won't charge more than it costs for the shipping and the box and packing materials.
