Claro Walnut solids and veneers.
I made every peice of this puzzle out of the same stack of Claro Walnut lumber cut from one tree, including the veneer. All surfaces of any appreciable size ( sides, door panels, front writing suface, top face, ect,) that aren't solid, are veneered on both sides onto a man made substrate. This insures perfect grain matching and stability... forever. It has a stain and water based laquer finish.
The lid supports extend automatically when the desk is opened.
The pinapple finial was requsted by the client and represents the English symbol of hospitality.
This labor of love took just under 400 hours.

From the Artist:

I create pieces with an extreme focus on perfection .... quality materials, complete attention to detail and asthetic beauty.
