Sustainable Shaker


My Shaker Writing Desk incorporates all the clean design elements of Shaker style. But instead of crafting it from newly harvested wood as the Shakers would have, I have created the piece using 100% reclaimed wood. In this case, Antique Wormy Chestnut. It is finished with 2 coats of Danish Oil, bringing all the beauty of the wood back to life.  The character of this wood, salvaged from demolition projects mostly in Virginia, has no equal. Various nail holes, knots, cracks and wormholes give it a look that is nothing short of incredible. As with all my work, this desk is created with the highest degree of craftsmanship, preserving the natural appearance of the wood without compromise.


Dimensions are 47” long x 20” deep x 30” high.


As reclaimed lumber becomes more and more scarce, the value of this piece is bound to go up. As time goes on, there will be no old structures left to source the wood from. So order your desk today while this lovely Chestnut is still available.
