Here is a Lion theme desk that I just completed. The size is 30” tall x 36” wide x 96” long. This one took me several months to complete. The marquetry of the three lions has over 1000 different pieces of veneer. The reddish hardwood is Padauk, and the veneered base is out of Wenge. Thank you very much for looking!!!

I like the big marquetry. Seems I only do small marquetry.
This is very impressive.
Great job Dennis.

Beautiful work, the marquetry goes without saying but I really like that floating top. For me, little things like that take the design to the next level.
