My new desk has been delivered, fresh from the workshop of John Gallagher from Piece Furniture. The new desk replaces an ancient table and a couple of small. cheap computer desks, which made the rather small room extremely cluttered. John took my original design (done in Google Sketchup):
And added a slide out shelf on the right for my scanner and other small devices. The result:
I've spent half the weekend rearranging things and getting the cabling right. Because the room is so small, I can't take a really good picture, but take my word for it: this is a great desk. John has done his usual sensational job - he has made several cupboards for me in the past - and just walking into my study is a pleasure now.
