This is a desk that was made for a past customer. It was completed in May 2009. The reason it looks out of balance is because it is designed to meet up with their existing Ross Murphy bed that I built in July 2007. This desk has a keyboard tray, file drawer, and a CPU compartment.

I matched the stain color, which I kept of file, hardware, and design. I pulled the raised panel front on the murphy bed and used it on the CPU door and kept the drawer a slab design to match the original ones.

Here is the customer’s orginal bed:

I love that desk. I’m jealous, in a good way. I envy your talent and huge shop.
