Mission style desk for computer use, a commission. All quarter-sawn white oak. Legs are quarter sawn on all four sides. The client uses specialty control panels for his software, and requested I make custom cut outs for them; also, when not using the panels, he can put in filler inserts. Also built a “cage” for his components.

I challenged myself to design a modern mission style desk. The contrast between the two styles was challenging. I enjoy designing with Sketchup (and the rendering engine, Kerekythea) as much as actually being in the shop.
Some specifics: The drawer pulls are hammered copper, and sunk into cutouts in the drawer, as contrasted to being attached through the drawer front by a screw. All cherry and ebonized cherry. 6′ 4″ long by 32″ at the deepest. The top is 30″ high, and has 25″ of leg clearance.
