Sculpted Desk Inspired by A Neighborhood Tree
This design came about by collaborating with the client who happens to be a financial adviser but formerly a woodworker himself.
It was first conceived as an idea derived from an amazing tree with buttress-like roots that may be a baobab, Adonsonia.
The desk faces the rooms entrance and we needed to create a front panel. I have a carving technique that can be done fast so I offered this to keep it interesting and organic.
The small drawer is shown partially extended. The desk does came with a stand to elevate the computer tower a few inches off the floor.
This desk is made with rare burl mahogany but any wood you prefer will do.
This is a close-up of the wood desk top with the custom wood grommet to pass the computer monitor cable. You can also see the dovetail that locks the top to the leg. In fact, he desk is held together entirely with dovetails and assembled in just 3 minutes. If you live far away from my workshop and would like a desk like this, in any wood, it can be shipped in a large flat box right to your door.
