Curved desk in ash and walnut
Curved top desk in ash and walnut. Top is ash with walnut inlay strip. Legs are bent laminations of walnut. Stretcher is also bent lamination to match curve of top. I built this for a friend’s office to hold 4 computer monitors. He wanted it simple, no drawers. 8’6″ long by approx 29″ wide
Nice design, nice use of materials and appealing to the eye. I have always been drawn to curves; windows, doors, shelves, furniture and of course, the human figure. Curves can be overused, but you show a nice balance and the size of the desk allows for a gentle front and back that works with the tighter curves in the legs. You deserve to feel proud of your work.
Excellent design and execution -- and a nice selection of materials.
Looks really good and simple. I personally like simple designs be it for furniture or otherwise. It looks better, it's easier to maintain and most of all easier to clean. By the way, are the legs removable from the rest of the table? It looks so judging by the picture, however I could be wrong. Removable legs make any kind of furniture easier to transport.
Thanks for the kind compliments. They guy I built it for likes it too. He's asked me to build a matching small table, 42" square, with similar legs and top. The legs on this desk are in fact removable. My shop is in the basement, and I've taken surprising large objects up the stairs, as long as they're flat! I used 4 lag bolts from each leg into the top and the back stretcher through bolts to the legs. Removable legs were necessary to get it into his office as well. Thanks again.
very creative design
Very nice indeed. I'm interested in how you joined the bent laminations to the straight pieces? I am in the process of making a table with bent laminations arching across the front from leg to leg and tangent to the table's apron and would love to learn from your experience.
