This Mid-Century Modern desk is build with Baltic birch plywood to give it more substance and weight.  The veneer is quarter-sawn white oak and I used a highly figured white oak board for the drawer fronts.  The desk is finished with clear spray lacquer from Mohawk, which really makes the character of the white oak pop. I used white hairpin legs for this desk to give it a clean and modern look.  There will be professional SketchUp plans on Makers Mob where you’ll all find a complete 8 part series with a step-by-step how to guide to building the desk.

Dovetails on the drawers add a nice elegant touch but aren’t necessary. You can also choose to screw the drawers together.

I added a walnut strip to picture frame around the bottom of the desk to hide the mounting bracket of the hairpin legs.
