It was a perfect challenge. A family in Colorado asked for a well-designed, refined office desk to complement - but not to match - their home's rustic, log cabin feel. They weren't interested in rustic furniture, but neither did they want something completely unrelated to their setting.
I focused my efforts on creating something of a celebration of the log home tradition, a piece that would take the form to its highest level. This desk was the result. The thick walnut horizontal pieces are spaced slightly apart by extraordinarily figured, instrument grade tiger maple to echo the calm, stable effect of a mountain cabin (click here to see the result). The top is made of the same extraordinary instrument grade curly maple (one of the finest pieces of wood I've ever worked). The pencil drawer features a hidden compartment in the back, and the large drawer at the bottom has handmade wooden slides on the interior to accommodate hanging file folders.
