Mid century desk

I was given some recycled heart pine boards that came out of a century old hotel that was being remodeled. My son needed a desk in his room and he really likes mid century design. We came up with a plan that made nice use of the wood and stayed true to his tastes.

The boards are secured with biscuit joints and the drawer has a hidden notch underneath to use as a pull.

This was a great opportunity to teach him a few things about working with wood and made for some productive use of summer break.
