My Aurora Desk was inspired in part by the arches in Seattle’s Aurora Bridge.
One of the challenges with this project was the full extension file drawer. I prefer not to use metal drawer slides – unless they are needed for function- which they are in this case. The problem was how to incorporate the metal slides with an inset drawer. I had to make the drawer sides 1 1/6” thick to route in for the slides. The sides looked way to “chunky” so I rabbeted the top edge to mitigate the “chunky shape. The wire-way is in the shape of a tsuba (Japanese sword guard).
