Nested solid walnut tables allow an electronic piano to be pulled from underneath a desk.
The client’s idea was to design a desk that a whole electronic piano could slide out from under. A pull-out tray, like those for computer keyboards, would have been too flimsy, so I designed two desks that nest, with one on wheels.
Mechanical slides and casters smooth the movement of the inner table.
The tables can also be used separately. Note the truly huge dovetails.
The smaller table includes some of the craziest walnut grain I’ve ever worked with.
