This small writing desk and chair was designed for an Artist friend of ours. Manufactured entirely from Scottish Olive Ash, known for its characteristic pink hued brown heartwood, this desk was designed with the intention of showing off an exceptionally thin corner bridle joint on the desktop.
The desktop’s Quartersawn boards were constrained by the grooved frame while the entire top and drawer section dropped onto the simple leg frame section and is held in place by simple pegs.
The chair is simple with a straight back and despite its apparent lack of comfort is in fact quite the opposite. The drawers are lined with machine felt and have a concealed groove pull below their front edge.
