This is a custom desk and matching coffee table designed by the owner for the New York City's CEO's office of a Lehigh Valley's publishing company.
The desk is 36" deep and 60" wide, by 27" high,
and the coffee table is 24" deep and 48" wide. It
is constructed of two layers of 1-1/2" thick solid
walnut splined together in 3" thick slabs. The
'legs' are also 3" thick while the shelf is just one
1-1/2" thick slab. In addition to the splines that
connect the 'legs' to the top there are also lag bolts
through the top into the 'legs' which are then hidden by
the butterflies (aka bowties) in the top.
This is the double spline joint between the top and the 'leg' of both the desk and coffee table.
24" by 48" Coffee Table, 18" high: $2,350.00 (2008 price)
In addition to the splines connecting the top to the legs it is also connected with 3 lag bolts on each end (2 on each end in the coffee table)
The bolt is then covered with a butterfly ( bowtie), stained and finished.

This desk is priced at $1,525.00 (2010 price) including Stickley drawer pulls.
The top of the desk below is 46" wide and 24" deep. The desk top is 30" high and the keyboard tray is at 26-1/2". Made of quartersawn white oak with a dark golden oak stain. As shown this desk is $975.00 (2010 price) From the front the keyboard tray looks like a drawer but the front drops down to lay flush with the drawer bottom.
|Office Desk with through tenon Legs
and Walnut Inlay
This desk incorporates elements not found on other desks. The "through tenon" look of the legs standing proud of the top are false. Had we brought the legs up through the top we run the risk of the top splitting should there be any significant shrinkage in the width of the top. Quartersawn oak can expand or contarct about 1/4%, or up to 1/8 inch for a 36" wide table. If the top was fixed in position by the legs this 1/8" shrinkage would manifest itself as a crack. We don't want that.
The desk is 36" wide, 66" long and 29" high. All four aprons have a slight arch, about 1-1/4" thinner in the center than the ends.
Because the front two legs will be sitting on a rug and the back legs on a wood floor, the legs are fitted with adjustable pads.
As shown with walnut inlay, $2,225. Without inlay, $1,750. (2010 price)
