Dumbledore's Writing slope.

This is the writing slope that accompanies the desk which i posted about last week.



Made from the same timber the desk is made from ( English Walnut ) i have also incorporated an ink well that is made from Engineers Chalk, This is a new material i have been experimenting with and even though is a very soft material is quite robust and a lot harder than the chalk which is used for blackboards and instead of being pure white has a lightish tint of green.



The above image shows the inkwell which is fully removable from the slope.


The desk showing the writing slope in its position most of the detail for this piece was reproduced in cooperation with the customer who has commissioned the work and also from various other images.



The inside contains a tiny draw and shelf, This commission piece is virtually complete now and hopefully i will post images of the fully finished piece next week, i have to say its been a thoroughly enjoyable piece to make even though it was trying at times!
A very warm welcome to my new followers and many thanks for taking an interest in my journal.
Have a wonderful week everyone.      Tony.

  2. Stunning work Tony, love the fact that the inkwell can come out. I have some English Walnut on the way from England, you just can't find it here at all, funny thing is, I am planning on making a Queen Anne table-top bureau with it :-)

  5. Lovely work, great attention to detail.

    To solve the mystery of what your new mysterious material "Engineer's Chalk" is composed of and why it has a green tint but can make a white mark...

    It is soapstone.
