Doucette and Wolfe Furniture Makers

Handmade Desk Curly Maple Curly Cherry
Writing Desk
made of solid cherry and curly maple
This writing desk is custom designed with a nice flow to the curved legs and great proportions that keep the larger desk from looking "heavy",  overall size is 72" x 32" x 30"

The tiger maple and cherry used for this desk are individually cut from the same tree to ensure perfect color and grain match throughout

Drawers fronts are solid tiger maple while they are constructed with hand cut dovetails

Desk with the top roughly sized.  We custom made and turned nobs and pulls so the client could see different variations. The client and I both agreed a nice low profile custom shaped pull would look the best.   This desk design is great because changing the wood type and or finish with a slightly different door pull can have a piece that is more contemporary or more traditional.
