This Cherry desk was built for the same client with the Cherry media cabinets and Mahogany & Wenge mantel. This was actually the first piece I built for this client, I believe it was back in the summer of 2001. The drawers feature hand cut dovetails. The joinery for the desk is mortise & tenons that are pegged with Ebony. The bread board edge on the top is also pegged with Ebony. The turned legs are from Mathew Burak. Finish is oil / varnish.

Timber,
I looks very nice, but I don’t see how it can stand up. Is it fastened to the wall?

Hi Shannon

It was my design. The client wanted something the same height as their island. You can see a bit of the island in the photo. Being the same height as the island they can use the same stools. They also needed the desk to be narrow so there would still be room to pass between the desk and island. With the desk in place clients could work at the desk while the kids work at the island doing homework etc.

Very nice! I was going to build a two-legged table of my own design a few years ago, but didn’t have the courage. Thanks for showing me what it would’ve looked like.
