Introduction: Neverending Desk

The Never-ending desk is my most cherished design, it defines who i am.

It is made from African zebrano hardwood and veneer, European Maple hardwood, the framework is made from Beechwood, MDF and what we call here in the Netherlands "Buigplex" I'm not to sure what the proper English technical name is but ruffly translated "Bend plywood"

Regards

Fer

Ps: For those of you hoe wanted to know how i made the "bendy" Parts, i have added a cad drawing picture which slightly shows you how i did it. (I am very sorry but i am not going to fully explain the full build processes because i am busy with bringing this design on to the market for sale. I hope you all can respect this :-D ) 

Pss: the minimal radius is +/- 120mm (but very hard to accomplish if you have no experience with this technique! )

Super Sexy! This Idea can be used to make a table that looks like a stack of books! Something here makes it look like it came streight out from a harrypotter movie!

Haha thank you very much! I love the fact that you recognized that the drawer look like 3 book's stacked upon each other. this is indeed what it is supposed to look like. if you have a closer look at the drawers, i used a specified type of veneer to resemble old looking encyclopedia's.

You need a series of other pieces to go with it, because this wouldn't go very well with any furniture I have seen. Awesome design though for people who like looks more than function. I like desk space a lot and the amount I would wan't from that size desk is kinda insane.

That's the beauty of this design.
It is a modular design! which gives the client the opportunity to create more "desk space" if they wish by adding either a corner element or lets say they would like drawers on both sides, this is also a possibility.

And for adding other type of furniture, Google Safari furniture.
This is the type of furniture i wanted it to be mixed with.
But yes you are also very right i should design more to go with it!

Great!
Is that bent wood? If so, what is the smallest radius one could bend!

author
HIM+Design made it!(author)2012-01-23

the minimal radius is +/- 120mm (but very hard to accomplish if you have no experience with this technique! )

Is it my imagination, or are the drawer pulls made out of porcupine quills?

author
HIM+Design made it!(author)2012-01-23

No it is not your imagination, you are correct! they are made from the quills from an African Porcupine.

Thanks for noticing!

That is really cool!

The curvy bits seem like separate parts, or is it one large piece of wood? Either way it looks brilliant. Congrats

neverending had me thinking you had some kind of rotating desk top, kind of like a conveyor belt. Seeing as how I opened this under a false impression, I'm glad I did because that is really an awesome design!

Hi Bilget,

I do not understand what you are referring to?
Is it that you believe that i did not build the Nerverending desk?

Kind regards,

Although this is a beautiful desk, this isn't really instructing anyone on how to build it. It's more a showoffable instead of an instructable. Can you please post instructions on how to build it?

Remarkable. May I suggest to call it a Fer Desk. I am sure it will inspire all kinds of great designs. Thanks for showing it to us.

Nice desk, but unfortunately this is Instructables, not ShowAndTellables so this doesn't really qualify.
