Plane Old Wood
 
For 2010 student convention I am making an English Davenport desk. This is my first project and its a big one. Below are some links to some that I like and will use to design mine. I am working on the a Sketchup plan now and I will post it when i am done. I would love to get some woodworkers to follow along as I build and give me some tips and trick.

Hi Jalen,
That's one challenging project you're planning on doing, but if you take it one step at a time, break it down into sub-assemblies and have a good plan to follow you can do it. Just take your time. I wish I had been more into woodworking when I was younger. My dad was a cabinet maker and then an architect later on in his life As it worked out, I didn't really get into it until I was almost 50, aside from a few small things here and there.
Keep at it and enjoy!
Larry

Its important to be practical and have control on our emotions. Its really good that you controlled your emotions.

I am in military and going off to Afghanistan & would like to make a desk like this so I can take it over with me. What company did you get the blueprints from? I am leaving in July 2011 & want to get this started & finished so I can ship this over & it is there in the conex with equipment.

Thanks, RLM
