In an effort to bridge the gap between western and contemporary furniture, I designed this Cross Over Desk for a furniture show I participated in. I took a walnut slab that I had laying around that had fantasic grain patterns in it and instead of trying to hide the flaws, I accented them. The antlers on the piece were a brown color, but I sanded them to a smooth Ivory look and cut off all the points. Although I smelled like a root canal gone bad, the risk was worth the reward in the end. I was awarded the Exhibitors Choice sponsored by Mountain Living. Thanks for looking!
