Not really my style, but when your paid to do a job, who cares? This table/work desk was the creation of an interior decoarator. Over 6’ long and 5’ wide. He never ever picked up hardaware for the desk. Good luck opening the drawers:-) Dig that crazy carpet. I’ve gotz to go. I think i saw tiger tracks…....

I’m not sure if there is any strecher to the legs of this table/desk – is it strong enough to bear a bear?
Nice design anyway and thanks for sharing.

Yes, there is a BEEFY streacher of 4” the supports it. Can it hold a bear? not sure, but i had to stand on it to put in new lights. SSSHhhhhh… don’t tell the designer.

Maybe the owner works for the government and has really sticky fingers to get the drawers open with. :-)

Nice job on the table, but I can’t believe someone would pay a designer to come up with carpet like that.

This is an interior decorator? with that print floor? Don’t let him near my house…but it’s a nice desk/show area.

Need more info.

This is a standard double pedestal desk with a table attached to the back?

What’s it made of?

Did Safety Dan do any of the hand sanding?

Who you callin’ a BIG SISSY?! Thems is fightin’ words!
Just kiddin’
It’s 40” tall so he can stand or sit at it (with a bar stool) It’s basicly two sets of cabinets connected with a 4” streacher. Then another streacher to the arched leg. It’s painted parts are shop grade 3/4” plywood. The top is maple plywood. The drawer fronts , stiles and rails are maple.

Safety Dan…...We have some new things in store for him in the up coming shows.
Plus some new characters will premier this year too. Stay tuned….......
