This desk was made from a giant slab of Walnut purchased from Surrey Timbers. It's a simple design with continuous grain running over a mitre on one edge. This was joined with Dominoes to ensure the components lined up and for additional strength.
On the right hand side of the desk was a large split that needed repair. I opted to install Maple butterflies to prevent it opening any further, and also filled it with black epoxy. This ensure nothing would get caught in the exposed crack and would also stop it from acting as a dust trap.
