This commissioned desk is made from Balayong and Ipil. The pebbles are all hand made from different species of local woods and cast in resin. The bread board ends are from Ipil and hold the top together so that there is no stress on the resin. I was inspired by the Winged Keel of the yacht Australia 2 that won the Americas Cup in 1983. I had lots of fun and also some hassles making this desk but in the end, I think it turned out well. It is 1.8 mts. x .9 mts. The desk is very stable and I can sit on the corner without any indication that the desk will tip. Thank you for viewing this post.
