I designed and custom built this black walnut writing desk for my client as a pleasant place to work on his graduate studies. We started with a simple desk design with straight aprons and slightly tapered legs, and added the solid black cherry accents to give the piece a little more visual … interest. The piece features a nicely figured solid black cherry dovetailed drawer with hidden under mount ball bearing drawer slides with a nice soft-close feature. The cherry color will deepen over time to add even more natural beauty to the very nice natural wood of the desk. The piece is hand rubbed with multiple layers of oil polyurethane to highlight the figure of the wood and provide maximum protection.Read more Read less
Mission-style stand-up desk
by Mark G. Oct 13th 2012
Just thrilled. This was a different sort of project - an unconventional piece of furniture (a standing desk, set up for computer access) in a mission/arts and crafts style. Aaron put in a ton of time at the front end to ensure that the design was exactly right. Tremendous attention to detail, and beautiful craftsmanship. Delivery coincided with the 2012 Fine Furnishings show, at which it was featured and highly complimented. Aaron was a pleasure to work. Thanks again.
