An original design inspired by historical desk-on-frame examples, and updated to be ADA compliant. Robustly built from domestic cherry and walnut. The drawer bodies are made from poplar. Hand built except for milling the rough lumber and finish sanding.

Solid and robust, this desk features mortise-and-tenon joinery in the frame. The desk body is constructed with dovetails, with dado joints holding the cubbies. Figure-8 connectors securely fasten the desk body to the frame. Assembly is done with liquid hide glue. 

This desk is also ADA compliant! The legs are a full 30" apart to accommodate wheelchairs or other mobility devices, with 27" of knee clearance below the writing surface when the desk is open. 

The desk is finished with several coats of Osmo Poly-X Hard Wax Oil, an all-natural, low-VOC (volatile organic compound) finish made from natural oils and waxes, which preserves the look and feel of the wood without a "plasticky" sheen or feel.

Last but not least: there's a small secret compartment!
