Surface area of each desk is 68 square feet. Both are made of the reclaimed wood from the Yates shaft at Homestake Gold Mine. His desk is a straight board pattern with a spray lacquer finish. Hers is a herringbone pattern with epoxy finish. Their conference table is one of my next projects.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome

Great job on the desks. Did the customers choose the patterns and finish? (Personally I prefer the lacquer finish instead of the epoxy, but I think the herringbone pattern looks more elegant for an office.) Thanks for posting.
