I just started a slant top desk similar to this one for my daughter Liz.
I'm making the desk out of mahogany but I was thinking of making the inside drawers and cubby holes out of a contrasting wood. Most of her furniture is kind of dark so I may have to stain the mahogany a touch darker than it is naturally.
Any suggestions as to what wood would look good inside?? a lighter wood like Maple? or just keep it all mahogany. So often what I see in my minds eye looks like garbage when I make it.
I do have a bunch of Tamarack. I was also thinking of using the same wood I use inside to dowel the tenons in the legs.
So far I only have the legs made.I have to be the slowest woodworker in the world. I wish I had half of Allens energy
