this was a custom build that I auctioned for charity. The build itself was just for me to build the winning builder something they wanted. This was probably my most complicated project to date. It is meant to me used for multiple art disciplines including painting, drawing, carving, modeling and mosaic.
the desk is 8’ long when in the extended state but can be shortened to 5’ when desired by placing the end stand under the center desk and using the connecting bridge between them.
Most of the features are shown in the pictures. I tried several new things (new to me), such as the shelf supports and tilt mechanism for the table. Both support cabinets are on wheels to help in changing the setup, but I placed covers over them to make it look more like furniture and less industrial.
The overall size made this a two man project more often than not as so many parts were to large for one person to assemble, but there was usually someone around willing to help out (including the customer who really helped a lot).
