I’m selling my house (and my shop which is in the basement). I bought a few Bubinga slabs a couple of years ago because the price was right. I had one slab left and I wanted to use it before I sold my shop. This seemed like the right project for that piece of wood. I expect that this will be my final project until I find a new place to make sawdust.

The design of this desk was inspired by Benji Reyes' Working Desk.

The top is a Bubinga slab, underneath is Padauk and Moabi. The finish is teak oil.

The top is 135×90 cm and is 79 cm high.

Hopefully I’ll find a shop to work in before I go into withdrawal (or the wife makes me get a job).

Nice desk, but, where’s the blue tape marking the boundary line on the top?
Surely would need that! :-D

Very attractive piece and will make a great show piece—but, as a partner’s desk is too small to accommodate even one partner, let alone two—those babies were huge at the turn of the last century when they were in vogue. This is not meant as a criticism, just an observation.

This is awesome! Great job, I just finished a desk of my own.

I hope you find yourself making sawdust again soon. Best wishes with the move.

Awesome design and beautiful craftsmanship. By the brief look at your shop it is a beauty and I’m sure you’ll miss it until you can get a new one.
