This desk is a member of a lineage that has persevered since the late 70’s. It is made with plain figure White Hard Maple and Birdseye maple. It is 40 inches wide and 28 inches deep. Closed up it is 39 inches tall and open it is around 50 inches tall.

While showing last year’s desk I often heard two questions. Could electric power be provided inside the desk and could there be space for a notebook computer inside the closed desk? Both queries have been fulfilled with this desk.

Please view the Cherry Oval Desk video for more information.

I love the way that the pigeonholes and drawers raise up to give ample working room. Fantastic design and very well executed.
