This Figured Cherry desk was commissioned for one of my best friend's 60th birthday by his wife.
Under the ruse that it was for a rich client in Vail, Birthday boy was my size model for such things as hight and reach and got him involved with the project which he loved!
On the big day, his wife took him to lunch while i delivered it. Surprise! Surprise!
The interior writing surface is maple. The string inlay on the front is holly and ebony and the quarter circles that appear on the lid and front are Bolivian Rosewood. It is finished with clear, waterbased lacquer. shipping is approx.

From the Artist:
