Reclaimed Wood Desk - Sit or Standing Reclaimed Solid Wood Desk with Jarvis Electric Adjustable Standing Desk Base
This product is currently sold out.
The Reclaimed Wood Slab Desk is a beautiful way to work. A truly heirloom quality desktop - the wood has an extraordinary character; showing marks from nails, saws, and weather from decades of past use
The reclaimed pine used to make your desktop is harvested from old barns and buildings around the Midwest instead of standing forests. Reclaimed oak and other species are sometimes available by special order. Contact us for a availability and a quote.
We have learned from years of painstaking production how to carefully craft reclaimed wood tops. We moisture test and dry wood to 7% moisture or below. We use extra large Festool Dominoes and Tightbond 2 to join the boards for structural integrity. We painstakingly fill holes, open knots, worm holes, and .. bullet holes... with epoxy. Any cracked boards are carefully epoxied and bow-tied for strength. We CNC mill the top and bottom for perfect flatness. We also embed 1/2" x 1" Steel U-Channel in the bottom of the desk to provide structural reinforcement as well as ensure an absolutely flat desk surface. Both the top and the bottom of the desk are sealed and protected from environmental moisture to keep your desktop flat, stable, and provide years of service.
So, if you're curious why a reclaimed desk is about the same price as an Evolve - it's because it takes us longer to make a reclaimed desk than it does to make an Evolve. Reclaimed wood is just more difficult to work with and more expensive than new wood.
As a one-of-a-kind resource, each reclaimed wood top is unique. Color may vary from board to board, top to top. Some may show nails, some are pieced together, some have bolt holes that we fill with epoxy. We work to balance the preservation of the natural wood character with the practical need of having a smooth work surface.
The desk is available with the the Jarvis electric adjustable standing desk base or the Humanscale Float base. Jarvis bases are available in Black, White, Alloy, or Gray. The Float is available in Black, White, or Gray. (The Float is new for us, so please contact us if you'd like to upgrade). You can also order the top without a base if you're upgrading your existing standing desk (checkout with code NOBASE to subtract the base cost from the piece).
We finish your desk using a blend of traditional and modern finishing techniques. The hand wiped stain highlights the rustic nature of the desktop's surface. And we protect this beauty with a modern, environmentally responsible clear topcoat. Your top is carefully sanded and clear coated with a high quality clear-coat that has low VOC's and passes KCMA durability tests.
Rubio Monocoat oil finishes are also available on Reclaimed Wood desks. Contact us for more information, if you're interested.
