This is a standing desk of my design out of curly maple. The top hinges up for better ergonomics and there are two open shelves below for paper and other drawing tools. I made this so I could more effectively sketch and draw my woodworking projects. It is finished with dye stain to pop the curl, tow coats of tung oil, 2 coats of shellac, and wax. The top has 5 coats of shellac.

This is a nice piece and would be great to use in a lot of situations and would also work well in a woodworking or machine shop. Nice work.
