we delivered this 26” x 62” desk last friday … we all had a great time getting it together. it’s the latest addition to our ‘bethlehem steel’ series of pieces. the houndstooth dovetails were a challenge. sam and i had to adjust the leg shapes a couple of times in the process to make them ‘work’ with the piece, and the actaully process of dovetailing something 26” wide and 62’ long took a little figuring out too … it’s really just a big drawer with little drawers inside it, but it took a minute to figure come up with the best construction method … design by all of us; woodworking construction by will; metal work by sam and i …. more pictures and info and a (very) short video of part of the dovetailing process on our dorset custom furniture blog.
