This was a fun project to build. Built from English Walnut and Black Walnut with a bunch of Turquoise and Copper inlays. The pull out writing areas are made from Chechen wood. The customer lives in Arizona and wanted this desk to reload his ammo for competitions. Roaring Fork Custom Billiards

This is a gorgeous build! You should be very proud of this project. My only adverse comment would be the turquoise inlay, I personally don’t care for it, but I do understand most people do love it. The person you built this for is very lucky to receive such a beautiful desk.

Wow!

A true homage to that wonderful wood. The coordination of the grain with your design is outstanding

That is absolutely AWESOME.
The Walnut grain is used to perfection.
Thank you for sharing this beauty.

Beautiful piece; although, I am also not a huge fan of turquoise inlays.
