Palanjian desk mock-up
A lot of headway was made on Amy Palanjian's barn wood desk today. All the mortises were drilled and tenons cut this afternoon. A new "old" acquaintance, Toby Larsen, graciously lent a hand in the evening with his wide belt sander making quick work of evening out the table top. (Toby and I both went to United Community years ago...small world)
The contrast in texture on the legs is intentional. The outside surfaces of each leg will remain the weathered, brown "patina" that mother nature so kindly sculpted over many, many decades. It conveys the fact that the lumber used in construction is actually barn wood. Fabrication will be finished up tomorrow with delivery on Wednesday.
I might have to build another one of these pretty soon...Thanks, Amy.
