we finished this claro walnut slab desk last month. it has a welded steel base by my son sam, and a single drawer with a secret compartment behind it. the wood drawer face is covered with 1/8” steel plate to match the rest of the base structure. the ‘tool’ to ‘open’ the secret compartment is located in a sort of hidden space under the pencil tray. you have to remove the drawer completely to access the compartment. this piece is currently in a major show in housatonic, massachusetts at a new gallery called art et industries that is run by the renowned jewelry designer jordan schlanger. if you are anywhere near great barrington or stockbridge, mass, it’s worth a stop to see the 50 or so pieces by 15 different artists on diisplay there, through september. to see more on the desk, here's a link to my blog post on that. to see more about the furniture show and the other 6 pieces we have on display there, click on this link ... all for now … dan

I’m not a real fan of live edge stuff Dan, but I do like fine workmanship and beautiful wood.
You and your son do very nice work.
