New Work: A custom Standing desk in North American Beech and powder coated steel.

I’m very happy to see this completed; the beech looks really great against the RAL 7033 powder coating, which was chosen by the client (she could not have chosen a more perfect color, in my opinion). The color of the powder coating has a long military history, including german war tanks and submarines and dates back as far as WWII. The use of a unique color for furniture is refreshing to say the least and it’s a welcome change from the standard black or white that is usually chosen for powder coating.

The shape of the frame is another unique element that I was happy to incorporate into the design of the desk; I enjoy using rigid geometry and architectural structure in my furniture work and it’s not often that I get to, so I was very pleased to have the chance with this project.

I think this will win for my favorite project of the year.

I just finished off this custom American Cherry writing desk yesterday afternoon, which I designed and built for a couple of friends’ home office.

American Cherry, solid steel with an antique gun metal patina and dovetailed Maple drawer boxes.
