Live Edge Padauk Slab Desk

author-gravatar mfwoodbutcher Nov 21, 2018

This is a small dorm room or small bedroom/office sized desk. I had this slab of padauk in my shop for over a year before I decided I wanted to make a small desk out of it. I decided on hard maple for the base since I wanted something light that would make the slab stand out. The joinery is completely handcut. It’s finished with shellac.

Beautiful piece! That padauk slab is amazing looking!

Looks great! The padauk and maple go together very well.
