Studio Desk for This Week in Startups: The Building Process

by Erik Schimek on March 1, 2011

In our previous post, we discussed the design process for the studio desk. This post is a follow-up showing details of the construction process.

The desktop was created from 1.5″ thick solid wood, with each section of the desktop being crafted individually.

The sidewalls were created with beveled panels, which allows the wood to expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity. The desktop was connected to the base with  hardware that allows the desktop to be removeable (per customer request).
