« Part 2: more progress Part 3 of four station desk series no next part

Here you see my four station desk inside the medical clinic, where it now reduced.

I used Minwax special Walnut stain before a beautiful lacquer finish was applied by my friend and teacher, Mr. Lehman. Thanks to Mr. Lehman I was able to supply my client a set of desks with a first rate durable finish.

Nicely done.

How did you join the 190” of top together to form a single top? Is each desk a single module? In the photo I can see no seams in the top.

Brian, this is four separate desks, finished on both side in case they wish to separate or reconfigure these units. They just set next to each other, the client didn’t want them bolted together. I made the tops flush with the sides of the desk so they would have that continuous look. The tops have a 3/4” mitered band of oak on three sides which also breakup the look. I ran the grain front to back to make it not look so long.
