358 Solid wood computer desk

Center drawer is actually a pull out shelf with a flip down front on which rests the computer keyboard; generous holes for wire handling are in the back panel of the desk.  

At each side is a pull out shelf - ideally sized for extra pieces of paper.  

Underneath each pull out shelf is a small drawer, with just enough height to store desk supplies.  

Drawer fronts are birch with an ever so slightly contrasting finish color in order to evoke the shaker style.  The body of the desk is solid alder and the knobs are turned walnut.  

Showing scratch detail around borders, texture, distressing and "wormholes".

Showing ergonomics of desk -- the cpu and mouse can fit at the right side of the keyboard.  With the keyboard lowered in this manner, the body tends to automatically adopt a very comfortable position; the shoulders drop and the neck is relaxed.
