Here is another desk in maple in the spirit of Jean-Michel Frank.
I recently finished a writing / drafting desk in maple (from a James Krenov design) and an ash chair in the spirit of the Giò Ponti Superleggera. The seat is weaved by hand and takes a lot of time and material. More pictures on my professional website at www.atelier-desvallees.com
Today I installed the 3 walnut pieces to the chapel in Antibes, southern France.
The pedestal (I didn’t carve the statue! anyway it is made of stucco, not wood)
I just finished an altar, pedestal for statue, and lectern for a nearby chapel.
The wood is solid walnut, the design is modern, using a coopered technique.
This sideboard was made for a customer who has already a marble top.
I used wood from a walnut I cut 3 years ago:
Felling the tree – January 2008
Hoisting the logs for initial drying under a tarp
After sawing in 80mm-thick boards – April 2008
Dry assembly – January 2011
