Constructed with grain matched, figured walnut slabs, which were then fitted with a 2" think Lucite leg. The Lucite is mounted with brass hardware that is faced with hand-turned, walnut washers. Through the Lucite leg, you can see the hand-stitched, leather file system. Both the file holder & pencil drawer are made of solid walnut, faced with hand-polished brass. The desk has been finished using a tung oil, as opposed to a stain, which is completely natural & green.
Constructed from reclaimed heart pine from a Kentucky tobacco barn, the pedestal was then pickled & finished with a spray lacquered top & waxed bottom.
The Wall Unit:
The hand-fabricated steel frame holds concealed shelves at a random height configuration. The steel has been finished to have an antique brass look. The wall system is balanced by a cabinet on one side & specimen drawers on the other, as well as a central portal to display art. All of the wood components are constructed using locally-sourced, domestic maple plywood.
