This desk is the 5th completed commission for this client. It was a Birthday present for a Medical Doctor and full time pilot. Commissioned by his wife, my personal challenge was to create a desk for a very very accomplished, and obviously intelligent man. The desk is used for instruction and testing for flight training as well as conceal and carry testing for firearms. I was given full artistic license on this project and it was a blast to build. It was built using hickory, walnut and alder. Aviator themed hardware was hand carved then cast in aluminum in our foundry. All of the timber was hand carved to give a controlled aged feel. A rifle drawer and two pistol drawers were integrated into the apron of the desk. They were leather lined. The hickory top was 48" x 96".
