This is a New Wave Gothic desk in Solid Quarter Sawn White Oak -
The design combines elements from Gothic, Renaissance, Mission, Jacobean & maybe even a little country. Features include an original design gothic tracery (fretwork) panel in each trestle leg, rope carving, corbels, & leaf carving.
The piece is done with mortis & tenon joints throughout – all pegged and glued. The top is a floating panel configuration consisting of 8/4” frames and 6/4” tung and grove panels.
Finish is a hand rubbed hand cut shellac & Waterlox tung oil varnish over a combination of steps using various Mohawk penetrating stains.
