The major case components of this desk are made from solid American black walnut which I had air-died for 25 years. I selected highly figured pieces for the top and sides of the desk. The top front section of the desk drops down to revealing a writing surface and a number of small shelves. The external and internal surfaces of the drop front are slip matched walnut veneers (the adjoining pieces of veneer are placed in sequence). Matching veneers are used for the three lower doors. The back of the desk is also finished using slip matched walnut veneers.
The approximate dimensions of the desk are 53” wide, 26” deep and 65” tall. The fold down writing surface is 50” x 22”.
