origami frog - Light desk / workstation for teams of 3 to 6. Occupies less floorspace then an ensemble of rectangular desks.
These examples are in pine with white oak legs. The leg sections are hand planed with a japanese plane which presses the woods oil to the surface heats it by friction and polishes it smooth. Subsequently they need no treatment. The plateau is treated with a matte finish, non tinting water based product.
