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.

Ah, something new at great last! The blue spline is a very nice touch, definately different from the usual ebony :)

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.
