This computer desk was commissioned by a client who wanted a piece that carried a less extravagant air than Georgian period pieces but with the richness of the materials used during the Georgian period. He also required the dimensions to be built around his computer. Meshing the humility of the shaker designs with the rich materials of the Georgian period, Hander Woodworking created this very handsome desk. To reduce the exorbitant costs of real burl, mahogany banding and marble materials, Mr. Hander built the desk entirely from sugar pine and then faux painted the burl wood grain, mahogany banding and marble. To maximize the appearance of antiquity, the piece incorporated mortise and tenon construction as well as hand dovetail construction.
