My client wanted a home office desk which featured a 'found wood' desk top. After surface planing the heavily weathered solid wood top a beautiful red alder was revealed. Breadboard ends were added to hide the water-damaged ends and compliment the sturdy 'rescued' top. Once the top's composition was revealed, red alder hardwood was selected to build legs, apron and drawer fronts. The clean lines of legs & apron allow the 'found wood' desk top to stand out as the star of this piece!
