Graduation of the masters students
While up in Portland for some much needed R&R I had the chance to drop by Gary's shop for the graduation of his masters students. My personal favorite piece was a drafting table made by Student Ben Wu. It was a very ingenious design made in Walnut, Sweet Cherry and Hickory. His joinery was well done and the desktop raises to become the drafting surface. The pen rest is held in place with magnets and can be removed if in the way. The legs are an homage to the famous Nakashima cantilevered chair.
