We built this minimalist desk in February and March of 2008. Until recently, I had no source for more of the mango wood slabs that another client had purchased for me. Just recently I have discovered a treasure trove of giant mango slabs at Diamond Tropical Hardwoods in Sellersville, PA. They are beautiful and reasonably priced .. Pick one out there for your own desk or dining table ... Below is a note I received from the client a few weeks after her desk arrived.
"Dan – just a quick note to say THANK YOU for the beautiful job you and your team did on my desk. Every day I get at least half a dozen compliments on it. It truly is a work of art. Thank you for your creative vision, craftsmanship and attention to detail. I will cherish this desk while I'm here, and if I leave, it's coming with me! "
