If you can live without the carved lid support bracket why not try it now. Don't look at the overall piece, look at the individual parts which I'm sure you could do if you are patient and ask questions. It's a lot of work but not that complex. The desk section is just a drawer that the front is hinged so it folds down. The drawer fronts with the burl veneer you just glue a strip of burl veneer with two strips of straight grain veneer and then run the bead molding design on it. This is something you could do with a molding set on a table saw. The scallop trim at the top could be cut with a scroll saw or if you didn't have one could be done with a sabre saw. The chip carving on the end stiles could be an some applied carvings you could order from a company such as Van ***** Restorers. Just make little changes in the design to match what tooling you have and parts you can order.

Halfazsc craftsmanship and same for the wood.
Get some proper wood and proper measuring, squaring and marking tools ( not a P.O.S orange glow in the dark tape measure and ona them thar flat pencils) and build it.Oil finish it and and do the carving some time down the road.
