It was quite difficult to source the Bolivian Rosewood (aka Morado) for this project because you can usually only find smaller or thinner pieces. We ended up finding a distributor in Maryland with just barely enough material to make the project work! The design was a collaboration between Cannon Hill and the client, who wanted a better work from home set up as Covid has him working from home.
The desk is completely custom made by hand, with every detail off the build planned beforehand. The drawer boxes are solid maple, with dovetail joints. It has an oil finish.
