Never Ending Desk
The smooth curves and sleek design of the never ending desk make it a unique and interesting piece. With three drawers tucked into its soft gentle curves and a lift up drafting table top, this desk is both versatile and dynamic. Combining African zebrano hardwood and veneer with European maple, beech wood, MDF and bendable plywood, creator and designer Ferdinand has completed a fabulously fluid desk. The impeccable craftsmanship and tricky building technique make this a project best suited for the very experienced craftsman and women. It is a time consuming project and the never ending desk took almost 6 months to complete! Check out the photos on 'Instructables'.

Zebrano wood or zebrawood, is strong and stiff with a fairly high density. It characteristically has open pores and a coarse texture, which means it can be tough to work with. It comes in a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra's stripe, hence it's name. Often chosen for it's bold, unique and wavy or interlocking stripes, it makes for a very interesting and courageous style choice.
