This is a custom French style desk made to exact specifications!! This desk was a departure from my other work and was a fun challenge to build! My client is an interior designer and is renovating her home and office. I will get some more and better pictures after she renovates the office.
The base is made from 1 inch steel square tube and the top and drawers are made from maple. The base was welded together, cleaned, sanded, smoothed, primed, and painted a brilliant gold paint. It is finished with 2 coats of gloss lacquer. The top is finished with 5 coats of a gloss white lacquer sprayed on. It is top coated with 2 coats of gloss clear lacquer. My client will put a glass top on prior to use to preserve the finish.
The dimensions of this desk are 30 inches deep by 72 inches long by 30 inches tall. This was a fun project to build. Toward the end of the year, it will be professionally photographed and put in national and local publications. I will update this post when I know the publication and the date it will be available for viewing.
