This Slant Front Desk is custom made of solid premium grade South American Mahogany. This desk was custom made for a client with details to accompany a Massachusetts Block Front Chest in the same room.  The Interior for this desk was custom made with a traditional look but for the use with modern electronics including a laptop and iPad.
