Thread: Maple desk with hutch

  1. #1

    Maple desk with hutch

    Maple desk with hutch. An unpaid commission () for my folks, based on their design inputs. It will sit in a large, open-plan kitchen, so I wanted to keep it somewhat cabinetry-looking, and was going for an aesthetic like "rustic-ish farmhouse meets Scandinavian modern".

    I think it turned out OK, but would genuinely appreciate any feedback from you more experienced folks. Thanks for looking!

    Looks great to me; functional, and I think you nailed the neo-Danish.

    If you have 100-150 bdft of fiddle-back left-over (always a little drop), I might be able to haul it off for you??

    Ha. The guy I bought the lumber from would have been very annoyed about that one piece that got mixed in with the rest, but sadly, it was only enough for those 3 drawer fronts.

    It’s looks great to me very clean look. I might have added knobs to the doors and maybe smaller handles to the small drawers.
    Looks like the maple is all from the same tree.

    Dan, it looks fabulous! Very clean & precise looking. How long did it take?

    Very well done, Dan. The only design change I would have considered would be to add a "backsplash" at the back of the desk top to stop stuff from going overboard and down the wall.

    Nice and unusual, please show us a pic of how it fits in the kitchen. I think a back made of a light distorting plastic might be
    interesting, making "fire works" of kitchen activity.

    ..A really smart looking desk, Dan. As long as the hutch is stable, I wouldn't put any back on it .. especially if there's some nice wallpaper behind it. ..Maybe a cork noteboard with a frame made out of the same maple.

    That's very well done Dan. I think you achieved your design goals. I too would like to see a pic of it in place in that kitchen.

    Very well done. Wood and finish beautiful. I like the special treatment for the three drawer fronts.

    nice job!

    I'm just a hobbyist, but I like the handles vs the knobs. I never liked knobs that much, but that's just me. Beautiful wood.
