I have tried to find a desk I know I saw here a few months back. There was some photos here and I wanted to show my wife. It was one of the nicest desks I have ever seen. I think it was made by a fellow who I think made it for his daughter who was going to college. It was a desk that was designed for a laptop. It wasn’t made like most desktops, it had curved legs that may have been steamed wood that was glued and put into a jig. They were cuved almost like a bow and each side had two legs together. The legs were a “X” but curved. It had looks like a streamlined piece. I think it had a top that folded down or maybe came down like a rolltop desk,I don’t remember exactly. The actual shape of the desk was almost a oval, but seems like it was more pointed on the ends. I think it was made out of maple and walnut. I have seen similar types of desks and they are masterpieces. Anyway does anyone remember this desk and can you post the link to the pictures. I wanted to show my wife the pictures.

That desk is not like the one I remember. But I did find a picture to one made similar. If anyone remembers and can post a link to it I am thanking in advance. Anyway here is one made similar to it. The insides were different to accommodate the laptop but the outside design is somewhat similar. The actual desktop was more oval and not like a shell type design. If you have ever seen a penny that has been flattened by flattening device that you see at amusment parks it has that type of oval shape on the sides.
