This handcrafted desk is made from a Mahogany wood door that was salvaged from a 1920's house that was razed in East Nashville, Tn. with all the solid brass hardware intact. The Black Cherry Wood Legs and Skirt Board were all that was left from a 1920's original dining set, found in an old barn in pieces along with one chair, that was headed for the burn pile in Ardmore, Tn. We coupled these two very different finds together to make a very unusual and one of a kind desk, salvaging pieces of the skirt board and putting it back together with mortise and tenon joinery. We made a center drawer and used the brass doorknobs as pulls. We re-attached one of the hinges to the edge of the desk so that the heritage of the piece was clear. The legs are offset to give this desk a very elegant look. The top of the desk is finished with antiqued mirror (as seen in last photo) set flush into the raised panels to make the top completely level. The seat cover for the chair is made from old fashioned upholstery webbing that is sewn together. Please place cursor over any of the images to get a close up view of the details.
