This is a desk competed on August 12, 2008. It was custom built for a customer who also bought our Baseball Murphy Bed Locker. The goal was to incorporate the look of the old Yankee stadium. I had some pictures and what I did was to match the top to the Yankee façade.

This desk features a single pedestal with drawers and a pull out keyboard tray. I tried something different on my keyboard tray this time. I had the false drawer front pull up and the tray slide out from underneath.

It was finished it in my standard baseball blue and green lacquers. All the case was green and the drawer fronts, writing surface and back were blue.

This is the extent of my art ablilty. This is a drawing that I sent to the customer.

This is the bed that went with it.

I didn’t get a good picture of their bed, but here is one similar.

I have more of my building pictures and a live video feed from my shop on my “Current Project” page.

Although a diehard new England fan,

I must say well done! The keyboard false front is a nice addition.
