Writing Desk in Walnut 'Foal'

Materials: American walnut

Dimensions: 140cm(l) x 80(w) x 74(h) 

The Foal Desk in walnut. The large desktop sits lightly on the galloping frame, the horse conceit working perfectly in this horsey home.  The desk has been installed in the customer's country home garden room in sight of the stables. 

The development and making of the Foal desk has been in many ways the perfect project.  The customer contacted me regarding a previous piece, a narrow refectory table I made three years ago called 'Foal.'  The customer wanted a desk along the same lines; he particularly liked the shape and gait of the legs, which are reminiscent of motorway footbridges but also the legs of a horse.  

His enthusiasm for the design consultation process, timber selection and functional details was as motivating as it was facilitating. And his whole-hearted and responsive communication made this project a joy to work on.  I so glad that he is happy with the work and feels that his own contribution was essential to the projects success.
