Urn Returns


This writing desk I have named “Urn” has been a popular piece among my clients around the country. The name is derived from its stylish and shapely top. For 2021, I bring you my latest version crafted from incredible Tiger Maple and Black Walnut. This new version is finished using a process that employs a medium brown dye which penetrates deeply into the figure of the Maple. Then multiple coats of gloss finish are applied, bringing forth a degree of chatoyancy that has to be seen to be believed. What is chatoyancy? It is an appearance similar to waves within the wood, an amazing and beautiful 3D look that changes as you look at the wood from different angles.  It is a purely natural effect believed to be caused by the tree being under stress as it grows, causing the grain to curl back on itself.


The Black Walnut legs, mounted at my signature corner positions, have a unique inward curl at the bottom, lending a lightness to the piece that could not be achieved with conventional legs.


The iamges herein do not do the piece justice and do not clearly show the amazing chatoyancy effect. It has to be seen to be believed. That is why I offer a no-questions-asked money back gurantee. You will fall in love when you see it but just in case you don't. just send it back and your money will be refunded.


This is a unique opportunity to own this piece of functional art. It is currently available for sale at $3,000 as shown. And as always, customization requests are welcome.
