The client had some lovely elm stored away in her shed and asked me to use it to make a writing desk.
I found a beautifully figured Elm board to make the top from and an equally lovely piece of Black Walnut for the drawer front. The hand carved handle and relief represent the symbols Yin and Yang.
“I asked Paul Martyn to make a small writing table for me because I knew how well-made and beautifully finished his furniture is. What I didn’t know was the immense care he would take in perfecting the design, giving it such elegant legs and a completely original drawer handle, which is lovely both to look at and to feel.”
