fancy x desk

Submitted by jamesryan9 on Fri, 02/01/2013 - 01:31

I chose to make this great looking desk out of Walnut wood. So, obviously its not the $55 dollar fancy X desk that Ana White has posted, but it does share the same design. We were looking for a heavy, sturdy, and large desk for our office and I simply added linseed oil to bring out the natural beauty of the Walnut wood. Thank you so much Ana for giving me the tools I needed to complete this project. Feel free to email me or message me if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions. jamesryan9259@gmail.com. Thanks

Walnut
Finish Used
I applied Linseed Oil and followed the directions on the back. I let it soak into the wood for 5-10 min and wiped off the excess with a cloth. I sanded some areas very fine and reapplied the linseed oil in certain places until I found the look I was searching for.
