The Trask Desk

The "Trask" Desk is my first endeavor in the pursuit of creating the perfect desk, a journey that began years ago and will continue for as long as I am making things out of wood. This is a desk that begins a saga, which is why it is named the "Trask."

John Steinbeck wrote a generational epic, titled East of Eden. The story chronicles the Trask Family through three generations, denoting the possibility of moving beyond fatalism to take control over our decisions and have dominion over what kind of people we become.

Coincidentally, my father, who proclaimed similar themes to me when I was younger, grew up on Trask Avenue. The design and execution of this desk serves as a grateful nod to the family I come from, the book that helped bring me to where I am today, and those who will come after me. The "Trask" is built to last with a solid wood frame, and metal legs. The next few generations will be able to sit at "Trask" desks to read, create, and write the things that will change the generations to follow after them.

The "Trask" Desk measures 36" Wide x 30" High x 24" Deep.
