This live edge slab desk is constructed of walnut, cherry and red elm. All lumber sourced from salvaged trees grown in Lyme NH. The owner, a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, liked the idea of locally sourced material.
Dimensions: 29h x 24d x 60w
The drawer pull is a copper enshin, a tool used for pediatric acupressure. The copper inlay on the slab edge began as a way to disguise defects in the edge and the finished pattern forms a symbolic yin-yang.
Crotch figure and cherry butterfly keys inlaid to stabilize central crack.
Copper pins used to secure the mortise and tenon joint meander up the leg, forming another symbolic yin-yang.
