Project Information

I included elements of Greene and Greene's the Gamble House in Pasadena, CA specifically the cloud uplift. It took me about 6 weeks to design because I kept tweaking it adding the Greene and Greene cloud details on the feet and keyboard support. I used SketchUp 8 and was quite please with the construction details I could print. I worked out all of the math to within a 1/16." The only plywood in the whole project are the recessed panels. The rest is solid walnut, mostly 4/4." The drawers are made of solid maple and dovetailed. I used 1/4" white melamine so they can easily be wiped clean etc. I used Blumotion 27" full extension drawer glides that were somewhat expensive but a must because the desk is 30" deep and I wanted full access.
