Here is a desk just completed. This is the third “themed ” type desk the I have done.The wood is Alligator Juniper and a little cherry burl on the small drawers.The legs came from a source in Oregon.Oil painting was done by a local artist Vicki Mauldin and the handles were also made from a local jeweler friend, Donna Spray .There is inlayed turquiose and small gold horse shoes in the top piece.The handles are carved into the doors along with all the sides etc. having waves carved into them (no flat panels except the very top)This was kind of a tuff desk but I’m very pleased with the way it came out.I did make a special chair to go with the desk. I will post after I get more pics back from my photographer. Sorry I have not posted on LJ much lately but this project is some of the reason why, along with a move to NW New Mexico ,Boy was it fun moving all my equipment and wood!!!!
