Let's Make it Real

In 1998, a local physician asked Bill Huston to build a small, laptop desk as a Christmas gift for his wife. It was built of cherry, with wenge inlay. It had a slanted top that lifted up to reveal a flat surface underneath and three little compartments for clips and whatnots. The interior surface was built on a wooden hinge, so it too lifted up to uncover another storage space for paper and notebooks. A clever little support was devised to hold the top open.

It’s a beautiful little thing. Just sort of makes you say, “Oh, how sweet.”

“Mr. Physician” has ordered several other custom items over the years including a pedestal table and a custom armoire. His wife, “Mrs. Physician,” ordered a rolling ladder for his home library a couple of years ago and presented it to him as a Christmas gift. 

Mr. and Mrs. Physician visited the showroom recently with a new request. She hasn’t used her laptop desk for several years and would like to put it to use again. She’s decided it would help to have a stand for it so it no longer needs to be placed on a tabletop; so it may have its own space and become a “real” desk. 

The stand, designed by Bill and built by Saer Huston, was created in cherry with wenge inlay to match the desk. It is large enough to accommodate a chair underneath. Even though the laptop desk has grown up and is a real desk now, it still makes you want to say, “Oh, how sweet.” C’mon, say it.
