This is a desk I was commissioned to design and build using locally harvested Miami wood, salvaged from hurricane damaged trees.
These blocks in the foreground are the pieces to be used for the custom executive desk.
Each chunk of wood will be sawn into lumber. This wood has verious names, Albezzia, West Indies Walnut.
After being sawn the boards are planed and sorted for the next step of laminating and other joinery. Any pieces that possess especially pretty grain will be placed for the best visuals.
This is one side of the desk after assembly and before the finish is applied.
The finished product after about a month of work. The left 2 lower drawers are actually only 1 to hold a printer.
You can see the special wavy grain selected for the posts.
The top has an inlay of some native royal palm. The desk’s owner wanted to match a pattern with the marble floor’s design and this is what I did.
Time was spent selecting just the right pulls that work with the chrome trim that wraps the base.
