This desk was made for a client using a recycled pallet from a local construction site. The pallet was made from Austrailian Pine, some type of cedar as far as I can tell. Very beautifully raggy wood textures.
The client wanted something with a “campaign twist” on it, so I added the canvas drop cloth to the front, back, and both sides such as was seen in some, civil war, and other campaign style furniture.
Because the wood was so soft, this needed plenty of renforcing, but once finished, I think it really ended up having a nice look to it.
