Default Tassie Blackwood desk for my wife.

Greetings all,

This is the story of the building of a Blackwood desk which will go in our small office for my wife to work on, since she now works from home sometimes. It will accommodate a computer, some drawers and some desk top trays.
First stop was to make the top. This is 1.4m x 620mm x 22mm. It has been finished with Hard Burnishing Oil from Organoil. The result is rich, smooth and has a pleasant smell to it.
Figs 1-4 show the finished top from various angles. The thing I love about HBO is the resilience that the finish has and how beautifully it sets off the grain in a timber.

I don't have as many tools as most people here...but Gee I've got some pretty hardwoods!
