Virginia Walnut Country Desk

Virginia Walnut Country Desk

This piece came from Cedar Grove Farm on the Potomac in King George County where I believe it had spent its entire life until we bought it a few years ago. It is almost entirely walnut with just a small amount of poplar secondary wood. The case is constructed with large dovetails rather than the sort of mortise and tenon construction that I would have expected.
