I take pen in hand...


I close, as ever, your obedient servant...

In my line, the first order of business is always contriving a way to hold the work. Benches and vises, clamps, jigs and fixtures all serve this purpose. Whether you wield a chisel, a mouse, or a Mont Blanc, the principle is the same. A desk must combine efficiency, convenience, and comfort. And desks send messages; make yours personal.

The alcove for which this desk was built has glass walls to the floor. It was important for the back to be sightly, as it could be seen from below; and to squander as little of the light coming in as could be. I pierced the modesty panel with a gingko leaf pattern. Square nail-heads stud the drawer fronts and match the iron hardware.
