This is an Ishitani Furniture inspired standing desk I built February 2019. Trestle construction and held together with wedges and pegs (no glue). It can be easily taken apart for moving. The arms under the table top use a sliding dovetail to allow for wood movement. The top is made out of cherry and the base is beech. I also built a small shelve that sits on the trestle to store my office supplies.

Thanks for looking,


-- Luis

Wow! That is really elegant. Your design and execution is right up there with Ishitani, you are both quite the craftsmen.

Very slick design and build. I love the sliding dovetail and wedge tenons. Really nice table. I enjoyed several Ishitani furniture builds on YouTube and think the are top notch.

Love it. Also a fan of Sensei Ishitani. And his little dog, too.
