Outdoor Desk

Delivered this white oak desk to the porch it will live on.  Between the waterproof glue in the top, draw bored mortises without glue, and the tusk tenons this should last for a very, very long time – even in the outdoors. The waffling pattern from the interior shots is from the shadow of the screens on the porch.  Should have probably taken some studio photos of this but since I am not really doing furniture anymore, not too terribly concerned with this as a portfolio...

Mortises, Tenons and Such

Client needed a desk for an outdoor shelter. Avoiding metal and glue joints in the base means draw bored dowels and tusk tenon fun. Fasteners that attach the top will be coated to avoid corrosion. Being white oak, could likely stand up to full outdoor use for decades. In the enclosure where it will live, hopefully hundreds of years.
