Current large project in the 'shop is a version of Wenger’s famous ‘Wishbone’ Desk from the mid 20th cent. This is being built in air dried Brown Oak and is at the stage where it has been roughly assembled for the first time.
This shows the top, made from 3mm thick quarter sawn veneers.
This is the framework with the central ‘wishbone’ rail in place. Although it’s not clear from the pic, the rear legs are vertical and the front ones are sloped.
The final picture shows the top placed in position on the frame. There will be a single drawer underneath the top on the left hand side, handle to be made from Ebony or Bog Oak. Finished size will be 1440 x 600 x 730mm.
