handmade...custom corner desk

John is finishing up the last of three parts of a beautiful custom desk for clients this week. He has previously installed the lower table section. That was made from natural edge walnut slabs. He also made a custom file cabinet that fits in between legs of the lower section. He is patiently waiting for finish to dry so the final top section can be installed possibly this weekend or early next week. John has been using a really fun program from Google called SketchUp to make his plans. It is amazing. You can look at your drawing from every direction. You can even go through a piece of wood and look at it from the other side. Here's a virtual 2-D view of the entire project....

The corner cabinet has a book-matched ambrosia maple door panel. The shelves are walnut and and the long side is 65" long the short end 24".

I'll try to post a picture of the entire finished piece in situ once it happens. We have a few new items in the etsy shop...cutting boards. Once you treat yourself to a beautiful hardwood cutting board you'll never go back to those plastic ones. Wood cutting boards are healthier for you and your family, easy to maintain and ours are made from sustainably grown wood.

Have a great weekend!

  1. The desk looks great!

    My husband also makes furniture, though only for us, and in his "free time." Right now he's finishing a play kitchen for Joshua's birthday gift. Thanks for the link to sketch up, I'm going to send it to him right now!
