Back in the late 1990’s I received a woodworking magazine which had some photos and some dimensions of a Wooten desk, I knew at that instance that I wanted to build one someday, well the day was late 2010 and today I moved it into our home ready for use. It is made from Walnut, Spalted maple, Oak and Pine and it is made from 85% of recycled materials that I have gathered from one place or an other. It was a great challenge for me to accomplish this and great satisfaction, it does not have the hardware that the original ones had but I manufactured what I had, and was able to purchase the rest to make it work. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed making the piece.
I have added some more photos of the early stages of the desk as requested by some of you.
The total time I spent building the desk amounted to 305 hours total and the supplies cost about $650.00 Cad
I kept track the building of the desk from day one with photos and descriptive words.
