Old, warm wood and cool steel come together in this refurbished 50’s All Steel desk. The reclaimed Douglas fir planks are held together using a cherry spine set into a consistent 1/2″ dado along the length of the board which reveals itself at either end of the table. The boards were skim-planed in order to keep the original character and patina in tact. The sharp edges and warm hue of the top contrast the smooth, cool, rounded base and stainless hardware. The old painted steel desk was stripped, sanded, polished & lacquered many times to ensure long-lasting durability and is accented with grass green painted writing surfaces & back panel. SOLID and HEAVY- but it comes apart into car-friendly pieces. I’m pretty sure this desk is going to last forever, mainly because the wood is 1/2 petrified already and the rest is steel…. Don’t worry, we’ll help you carry it down our stairs!
