I would guess it could be a really fancy drafting table for architectual work or artistic endeavors.
Really nice craftsmanship in the desk either way

It would appear to be an “old fashion” drafting table. Just way over built.
I used a much simpler version when I was in school taking “mechanical drawing” classes.

I looked and all the links came back to a website that required an account. It appears well built but gaudy and gimmicky in how it’s designed and overbuilt. And it doesn’t look comfortable for sitting, only standing.

Found an article at this site that describes it as a drafting table designed and built by Montana-based Douglas LaMont. He calls it the Cantilever. More pics, including close-ups, in the article.
