My Lovely Bride wanted a “kidney-shaped, free-form desk with no square edges, big enough for our two work stations, small enough to fit into the allocated space, with a mid-century-period look.” It also had to have room inside for two drawer stacks and for any and all electronics stuff to make the office work, because she could only tolerate one small cable-cover coming out of the desk. So the Internet modem, router, her laptop that she uses hidden away with an external display and keyboard, and the subwoofer for the sound system on my computer, all had to fit inside. On the desk would be her display and keyboard, my laptop and external display (I use both all the time), speakers, USB hubs, and whatever minimal wiring it took to connect it all.
No problem. The pics show the basic skeleton, after the mahogany curved corners were installed, after the oak plywood was installed, the “business side” with the drawers in place, and finally, the finished product in place!
This was a fun project, a bit out of my ordinary project itinerary, but when Mama’s happy, everybody’s happy. Mama was happy!
