Asian Style Desk, with Lion Marquetry
This desk that I designed and made has an Asian style to it. The size is 30″ tall x 36″ wide x 96″ long. The legs and rails are made out of solid hardwood then veneered with wedge veneer. All the veneered corners have a mahogany pin stripe inlay to break up the darker wedge veneer.
The top, feet, drawer pulls are made out of solid Padauk. The top is floating by using
1 1/4″ diameter padauk dowels turned on the lathe. The Marquetry on the front and side panels has a lion theme. The front has the male lion and one side has the female and the other side has a cub lion.The marquetry of all three lions has 1,000 different pieces of veneer. Thank you for looking.
