Double decker desk

I could have sworn I blogged about James' desk in the past but I just did a search and couldn't find it.  Last year our friend David made James a beautiful desk out of a slab of cherry, accented with some walnut.  It's the lower desk you see here.  It's a beautiful piece.  David is a true artist.

James does a lot of his writing while standing, so for more than a year he's had an ugly aluminum stand up desk that sat on top of this beautiful one.  As you can see above, it's been replaced with another piece of art.  James and I love it.  It,  too,  has tiny walnut bowties at the cracks in the cherry.  One of the things I really love is the live edge with these little carvings in it.

I was at David's shop this week and saw his most recent cherry bedside tables, which are equally as beautiful.  I love the dainty little feet on them.

The next piece of furniture he's building for us is a dining room table.  I can't wait to see what it looks like.  


  1. They look like tiny goat feet!! How beautiful.

  2. Gorgeous! I can't wait to see your new dinning room table, too.
