Longhorn desk-Tought I would share my latest in my “theme” desks. It is made of Walnut and Mesquite. Also there is a picture of the chair made to go with it. The desk features an original oil painting of a Longhorn, handshaping throughout, mesquite burl and carved handles. These “Theme” desks are one of a kind. Each one has unique features and a special “Theme” to go with it.

See our other theme desks:

Beautifiul, well executed. The Mesquite was an excellent choice – ties in well with the Texas themed table.

I’m beginning to become a big fan of Mesquite, really nice grain.

Ok, now I have seen two of your projects and I’m hooked. Beautiful. Just goes to show that a Maloof arm chair can go with anything, including contemporary western desks. I love it.

What’s with the WDC that Dennis is talking about? Are you exhibiting there this year? Have you been previously? I went last year, but didn’t apply this year.

great work,

I have been accepted for the WDC but thinking about backing out.I just received a sizable comission with a very tight deadline I don’t think I can do both and do them justice at least on the order I know for sure that I will make some $$$.The other thing is I am kind of worried about the new take over of the show and them moving it to Jackson Hole I’m sure the location will be good but unsure of everything else.So I may just see how it goes this year then maybe go next year.I did the show 2 years ago and did not get much so we will see.Thanks for the kind words
