My Goddaughter requested a desk and drawer unit for her study as she embarks on an art degree course. Just finished the desk element over the holiday weekend – still working on the drawers shown in the sketchup design picture.

I can’t claim any design credit for the desk – its based on one we found when searching for inspiration by Jim Probst (http://www.custommade.com/meander-desk/by/probstfurnituremakers/) and the drawers are (when finished!) designed to match.

The top, drawer fronts and leg inset detail are Sapele with the remainder being tulipwood

Very nice design. I bet she will keep for her kids.

One question. What is the silver post in the back and on the left? I’ll take a wild guess at a pneumatic post for raising/lowering a monitor. But what do I know.

Dave – You were close, the silver post is a ‘pop-up’ set of 3 power sockets (uses a gas strut)

Incredible work, love the power outlets and taking into account how it’s going to be used and making the function match the form
