Commissioned Desk

A commissioned folding desk featuring a reversible table top and reclaimed materials.  The table top is a 19th century cellar door that was purchased from an architectural salvage store near Athens Georgia.  Both sides are really beautiful and have different features so the desk is built in a way that allows the owner to easily reverse which side is the work surface.  The door was cleaned, sanded, and treated with shellac to provide a clean, smooth, and safe working surface.  The desk also features other reclaimed lumber that was treated similarly.  The majority of the structural pieces are yellow pine that is hand rubbed with natural danish oil.  The desk affords a large working surface while being easily dismantled for storage and features a combination of new and reclaimed material.
