Stunning is the right word. Who designed it? It looks authentic mid-century modern but the epoxy river makes it definitely contemporary. Aside from the epoxy, it would fit right in with a mid-century Danish bedroom suite my parents bought in the 1960s, right down to the walnut. Very nice all around.
How do you do the epoxy, the way it goes all the way through? Cut the board apart, reposition, and pour?
Thanks! The original desk (here
) was very loosely based on a picture
the client/friend sent me, just to give me a rough idea of what they wanted. I took the basic outline and drew up a streamlined version in Sketch-Up to the dimensions and requirements my friend suggested - no network of shelves in the back, simple dividers for papers, etc.
This current desk grew out of the original. The client contacted me and asked if I could make certain substitutions and additions, and I played with them in SketchUp until it looked right to me and the client. I'm so glad you like the design! I've always thought that design is my weakest point, but hopefully I'm getting better.
For the epoxy: Yes! I took a piece of walnut me and dad had harvested, cut it down the middle, flipped the pieces, and then (unfortunately) had to cut a faux "live edge" inside the real live edge, because it was too wide by itself. Then clamp it to some waxed melamine, dam up the edges somehow, and pour! (Two separate pours, because otherwise it can get too hot and crack)
