Studio: The Desk makes the office!

For years I have suffered with a desk with a  design that hearkened to the old days of massive CRT monitors. Although the width of the desk was extremely functional the depth of the desk created an un-wanted storage space for dusk and receipts.

In July my Aunt was moving from Newmarket to Ottawa one of the items that was destined for the trash was a small wood table with family significance. The table in question was a Frankenstein style desk that my grandfather had strung together from various found pieces. His carpentry skills brought the desk a new life including the design and fabrication of two invisible draws and the addition of extra structural components, the added durability made the desk akin to a German tank.

Always game to keep with family tradition I have since augmented the desk to fit my needs. The top was removed and re-shaped to fit a 24” Wacom Intuos and has now completed my office redesign. Family heirloom, more like family repurposing.
