With this design I was playing with weight and balance and incorporating a swooping curve that is attempting to depict a stylized tree-like form that would contrast the straight lines of the drawers and top. The keyboard tray is over an 1 1/2” thick and like the drawers are mounted on soft closing slides. The wood used is walnut and maple and the finish is hand applied polymerized tung oil. The blue inlay is dyed bamboo and I was playing with colour and enjoyed taking the chance with it.

Great combination of lines and details, as well as your wood choices! Excellent work!

Holy cow, that is an insperation in it self. great form and execution. Iam really taken aside by the wood choices and grain patterns. Move to the head of the class … However one thing I don’t understand … why is it held together with Velcro?? As shown in photo 3. :)

The blue does remind me quite a bit of a turquoise inlay, just not quite to that degree since you can still distinguish the grain of the wood.
