The latest desk in my collection. This desk features my new longer two toned, art deco style drawer pulls and stretchers, splayed legs and a bowed sretcher. It has some special features that can only be shown to new owners. The top is balayong wood with molave breadboards. The splayed legs are yakal. The drawer pulls are laminated molave and kamagong (ebony). The bowed stretcher is Ipil and locked on both ends with kamagong keys.
Drawers are keyed to the sides and are crafted from Ipil. All woods used are reclaimed as with all my projects. I hope you Enjoy viewing the photos. Have a great weekend!

Striking. Design really flows nicely. Your joinery is first rate.

I like the way you are using reclaimed wood.

I bet the Greene Bros would smile at this and give you the nod.

Sir you are a true artist and master. I salute you. one of your pieces is incredible

I have always wondered WHY we make drawer carcasses out of nice solid hardwood then cover them up with a sheet of plywood. YOU GET IT!
