Another project for a client who wanted some “re-purposed” furniture. This is a standing-height desk. The wood is walnut and the “desk-top” hinges up for storage. The legs are blackpipe. Pretty simple and fun project!

Haha! Nice. Reminds me of a school desk, somehow.

Great idea, great re-purpose of the suitcase. Very artistic in creation.

Fantastic desk! Like the style and the use of old suitcase combined with wood and metal pipes. Awesome work!

Have your say...
