Here’s the latest incarnation of my work space. The desktop is a walnut slab with a living edge that I sanded smooth and finished with seven coats of wipe-on poly. Stainless steel legs bring it to desk height. I keep the desktop clear of everything except an iMac, a pair of speakers, and a morning cup of coffee. An articulated keyboard tray brings the keyboard and mouse off the desktop down to a more wrist-friendly height.
