I apologize for not being on here keeping up with the blog. Truth be told, I have been working a lot and brainstorming ideas for the legs of the desk. I have been particularly finicky about the outcome of the legs. I am not satisfied with the poplar lumber and the stain in which I used on the sample board. It appears to me, like a stain of a manufactured piece. This simply cannot do, although other folks may like it. I am definitely keeping the legs the same shape and all. Just a different species of wood. More on that soon, don’t worry, I haven’t started on it yet. I will keep you posted. I have also been dealing with making a smoothing plane. I will post more on that soon.
