Contemporary Claro & Black Walnut Secretary Desk

This custom made desk is made from richly colored Peruvian Walnut and highly figured California Claro Walnut for the drawer fronts and door panels. The desk case is constructed with dovetail joints for strength and timeless beauty. The unique desk top is fabricated from 46 pieces of wood and joined with 110 dowel pins. There is a solid aluminum rod inserted in the wood pieces to create an unusual and elegant hinge. There is a small hinged door in the back panel for a computer and phone access. The drawers are constructed with precision rabbet and dado joints for a snug and smooth fit. The lower drawers have concealed locks for added security. Custom openings were designed for the drawers and doors instead of knobs, which truly gives this desk a custom look. The organizer was designed for efficient use and storage. The bottom cabinet has two adjustable shelves with concealed brass pins. A similar piece can be designed and fabricated as desired.
