I was commissiond to make 2 lap desks. One in african blackwood with resin tree burl interior and the other in Stinkwood with wild olive interior. It has 4 secret compartments and leather inserts. The hinges were custom made in the same wood, and was finished off with genuine leather.

Beautiful lap desks! I like the wood combos you used, and love the hinges!

Not sure if I’d want one made of stinkwood, though…......!
