Western Big Leaf Maple Desk Set With Rare Elements - Spalting, Flaming, And Burl

3,400.00

One-of-a-kind, hand-finished, live-edge old growth Western Big Leaf Maple Desk Set. Solid slab 2.25 inches thick from a naturally dried tree that had fallen in the late 1970's and this heart slab was saved by the land owner for nearly 40 years.

Extremely unusual and rare to find all of the coveted maple elements in a single slab but this included flame maple elements, natural spalting, burl, and stunning unaltered live edges. Plus, there were interior bark veins that I left in place as they gave this piece an even greater one-of-a-kind appeal.

SET OF TWO. I'm currently only offering these as a set. Primarily because both pieces were created from the same slab that was originally 4 inches thick and over 12 feet long. I custom milled both sides to create a perfectly flat surface for the underside as well. By choosing the milling areas as I did, it included the veins of bark plus a natural live edge indentation on the backside of both so that cords from electronics could easily go behind the desks when they're pushed tight against a wall. I left a few imperfections to edges and surfaces in order to protect the integrity of the overall design and functionality.

DESIGN DETAILS. I designed them for a home office. I had custom steel legs made that created a height of the right hand desk to slide perfectly underneath the left hand desk (pictures here show them separated). In addition, I designed the right one with the live edge side down, and at a height perfect for a keyboard, and other computing components. The left side was created with the live edge up, at a height ideal for letter writing, drawing, reading, etc. In addition, the left hand side height allowed for room to add a custom Hon locking drawer underneath for typical desk items. I positioned it where it's hidden from view, yet easily accessible for daily use. The footings on the steel are adjustable in order to level the desk on uneven floor surfaces.

FINISH. This is a beautiful hardwood product with a professional waterproof finish (two-part conversion varnish) and striking grain pattern — functionally durable and aesthetically enhancing any space. It will last many generations. 

LOCAL DELIVERY. The price of $3,400 for the set includes local white glove delivery and set-up. The steel legs will be removed, and then attached onsite. This service is for locations within 25 miles of downtown Portland, OR. Further distances for this location will be considered but will likely include an additional fee.
