This designer desk was handcrafted by Earl Nesbitt who has been building custom furniture professionally for more than 30 years. The desk has a solid zebrawood top with a hand sculpted edge. The base is solid walnut with sliding zebrawood pegs, a functional and innovative construction technique that allows for seasonal wood movement. Hand rubbed tung oil based finish. Dimensions: 64” x 32” x 30 1/2” tall. Original design with hand carved signature by Earl Nesbitt.

This is what the Hawaii client said about his designer desk: “I can't say enough about how much I love my new desk as it has taken a functional piece of what was "office equipment" and replaced it with what is a jaw dropping work of art. What I feel makes this desk special is two fold, of course the craftsmanship and detail, right down to the centering of the grain of the zebrawood at the arc of the front of the desk, to the small cutout in the back portion, just make it a show piece. The desk is also well thought out as a functional piece as the idea of drawers having been replaced with far more functional and forward thinking shelving which just further shows off the quality of the product of which the desk is composed. If you are a traditionalist and would rather have things the same way you have seen them done in the past or would rather have a lower priced piece with inferior materials, design, and craftsmanship then this probably isn't for you. If you want something truly unique and something that is timeless and forwardly thought out, you have come to the right place.”
