This is an 8 foot custom desk built for a friend that is a musician and does a lot of mixing at his desk. The top and drawers are 100% local walnut, and the legs were welded and polished using square tubing. We carves out wooden pulls for the drawers and finished with Arm-R-Seal semi gloss. The inlayed drawers were a real pain, and took a long time to get seated just right.

This desk turned out so beautifully.

Very pretty. I like the sapwood edge.

Great looking table.
Could you describe what exactly you did for the legs? I really like the effect.

Cool modern and live edge fusion. I have just started to appreciate the use of sap/heart mix in Walnut. That’s a great desk.

Thanks for the kind words. We used 2”x2” square tubing with a piece of flat bar on the top. There are lag bolts attaching the base to the top. After we welded the base up we polished it until it had the swirled look and then finished the metal with a product called Penetrol. Works really nice for finishing sealing steel.

Great looking table.
