Finally finished the back of the desk. To utilize all the extra depth this desk has to offer, I designed a center bookshelf and hidden storage on each case side. I also satisfied my lack of enthusiasm with the Ogee bracket feet. I attached a pad on the bottom of each foot. This gave me the “stately” look I was trying to achieve and also gave the desk another 5/8″ of height. The pictures below reveal the wonderful reddish hue Walnut trim up against the walnut veneer. At this point I am ready to start building drawers. So far I have cut 64 dovetails to fit the two cases together. Its time to build the desks eight drawers, each has twenty dovetails, that’s 160 to cut. I will be cutting dovetails in my sleep when this is over.
