End Grain Desk

My concept was to create a piece of furniture that looked like it was carved from a block of wood. 2x6" fir would be joined, glued and sandwiched. The hand drawn drafts show the alignment of the end grain which would be visible on the faces of the desk. I also liked the idea of one end, with organic curves, visually merging into the other end, with its sharp, linear geometry.
