    Old, cedar German desk. We picked this up at an estate sale this weekend and were told that it was shipped over to the US in the 50's. It sat in their garage for 65 years and he passed away recently. She decided to pass it on as he never had a chance to refinish it. If anyone has any information on it, please share!!

      I would have to assume the previous owner was trying to rebuild this rather than refinish it. It was once quite a desk but at this point it seems to be more of a keeper to enjoy yourself.
