Here is a project I completed for my employer recently. The task was to create a reception desk that would compliment our massive curved counter that was built in the 1950s. As a woodworker almost every time I walk past the counter I wonder how I would make it and even if I could make it! You can see it in the background of some of these pictures. I made the desk in one weekend out of birch plywood with birch trim. I cut the dados with a Festool router on the track- I really like doing it that way as opposed to cutting them on a table saw etc. Once completed the desk was finished by the same person that stained the existing counter. I am not crazy about the color (it makes the wood look dirty) but the finish was sprayed and it is very smooth! The design features a built in computer monitor set at an angle with a sheet of glass covering the entire top. The desk is on castors so it can be moved around when needed. On the front we had an acrylic sign with stand offs installed with company logo. The sign could have been a touch larger but this project came together very quickly and I think it looks pretty good.
