Posted by Bill Esler | Posted: 04/17/2014 2:24PM

 

For this custom writing desk of solid cherry and tiger maple, each species was consecutively cut from the same tree to ensure perfect grain, figure and color match throughout the piece. This desk is made with traditional mortise and tenon and dovetail joinery, by Doucette & Wolfe Furniture Makers, Mt. Washington Valley, NH

The five drawers are made with hand cut dovetails. All surfaces are hand planed to achieve an unmatched finished surface. At Doucette and Wolfe Furniture Makers we make fine handmade furniture. We use the finest hardwoods available today combined with a meticulous attention to details. Together these elements make a future family heirloom that can be used and enjoyed for generations to come. Contact us for more information.
