Looks as good as it feels. Arrived today a little behind the estimated time but it was well worth the wait. Toby and partner were very helpful with answering any queries behind this as well. Just keep in mind this isn't a desk from Ikea and as such takes some time to make properly. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a large office desk that is made finished to a higher than usual quality.

What's different about this picture? Look hard... Yes!!!! I'm left handed and they made this wonderful desk left handed for me!! (I know the holes just had to be drilled slightly differently. I don't care. I live in a world where everything cool is for right handed people like no one else exists. The only thing I can't do right handed is Write.) This desk was worth the wait and the shipping across to the west coast. I finally can have my laptop and references out and take notes by hand properly. And it fits in my bay window. And it'll double as a table. It's super sturdy- the wood is so hard I had a little difficulty screwing the screws in the legs but I think that's a good sign. Thank you!
Creating high end, contemporary furniture for customers across the world.
Wicked Boxcar was a natural progression for the both of us. After training and working for others in the same field the time came to branch out and create our own take on high-end, functional furniture crafted in sympathy with the world around us.

Additional policies and FAQs
What do you finish your furniture with?
The finish on any piece of furniture is of the upmost importance as it protects and enhances the wood ensuring the furniture can last a lifetime. This should be thoroughly understood prior to purchase of any item. Here at Wicked we are able to custom finish all our pieces (wax, lacquer, oil etc.) but, as standard, we use an industry leading, low VOC polyurethane.
What wood do you use and why?
When it comes to furniture there really is only one choice of timber for us: hardwoods. The everyday wear that a modern family environment takes on its furniture requires it be robust and prepared for longevity. Most of our hardwoods are sourced from the cargo trains that freighted America through the last century. Whilst the timber is expensive in comparison to the softer varieties it is because of its strength that it was chosen for this role.
What maintenance is required?
The finish we use is designed for the modern, busy home. To this end it is both water and heat resistant. We always recommend spills be tidied immediately and coasters / plate mats be used. To clean use a damp cloth.
Do you take custom orders?
Yes. Around 80% of the projects we undertake are customized in some way by our clients. Customization of any of our pieces is possible at no extra cost. However, overall size increases / decreases will be reflected in the price.
How are your shipping prices set?
Shipping is standardized across the world but if your country is not stated then please get in touch. Because of the high volumes we ship we get deep discounts though our accounts with national shippers and freight brokers which are not available elsewhere.
Do you ship internationally?
We ship worldwide (our main markets being the US, Canada and the EU) and can supply a shipping quote should you wish - please message us.
Do you sell to retail / wholesale?
Yes. Wicked runs out of a 2500 square foot shop in London, England. We work through local stores and plan to expand our channels of distribution over the coming months. Please get in touch to talk.
Do you take commercial orders?
Yes we do. Please get in touch should you require large orders. This year we have completed office setups for businesses in New York, Boston, Paris, Philadelphia and London - the London set-up was for Etsy's European HQ!
