I built this Writing Desk as per the situation of Fitzwilliam Darcy. The design is not a reproduction of any particular piece. My goal was to produce a piece that has the look and feel of something you might find in one of those Jane Austen film settings.
This is a chess set I gave to my son Spencer as a college graduation gift.
This is a three generation piece. My dad made the walnut footstool. His dad-Herbert Young (my Grampa Young) made the walnut and maple chess board, and I turned the chess pieces from broom poles when I was about 20.
Here are Chess Ensembles that I am including in this "Tables" page.
This piece is a Case on Stand and was designed to hold this antique Bible for the First Congregational Church of Ann Arbor. You'll see this piece on several pages of my website as it falls under several categories including a table and liturgical furniture.
