This is another original design. It’s been pretty popular. A total of three of these desks, with variations in species and dimensions, have been made in the last year. Walnut and curly maple. each of the tops were made of 2 book-matched pieces, i lucked out on finding those. I was very please with the way the hand cut dovetails turned out on the curly maple, I was worried it would just crack with a couple good whacks with my chisels and mallet.

The box under the right side is to house any components the clients had to keep the clutter off the ground. Also, the right side slides under the main piece, and can be moved in or out 12” to make it longer or shorter as the user sees fit.

Also, these pics are taken in the front bench room of my shop.

Fantastic job! It’s a cool design, and the post processing removing the background colors of the image is a nice touch, too. Great presentation all around.
