Jeff Lefkowitz had a tip on Instagram a few days back that leather glued with hide glue made nice floor protectors for chairs if glued on with hide glue. He punched out disks and glued them on, but I decided to just glue on scraps and trim them with a sharp chisel.
Now that the desk is almost ready, I can take a couple of final swipes on the top with my smoother. Since it is all put together, there is a bit of a problem with workholding. I braced it the best I could against my tool chest, and everything worked fine.
Here are a few more detail shots.
I would highly recommend this project if you need a nice looking, quick and dirty project. It really is fast to make.
