The top on this desk is a bookmatched maple set with a perfectly placed streak of heart wood. Thanks to Brian at Logs to Lumber for hitting the jackpot with this one. The legs are afromosia.


This was my first project working with shedua. The sides and back panels are bookmatched from quartersawn stock. The top and drawer fronts are flat sawn shedua. The case work is walnut. The drawer sides are made from curly maple.

Here is a close up of one of the bookmatched quartersawn shedua panels.

We live in an older home and to get the desk into our study, I designed it to break down into components. The sides and middle are attached by knock-down bed hardware.

This is the printer table made from matching shedua. It is designed to conceal the printer but opens up for easy access.
