Building a Reception Desk

This was a project that a friend asked me to help him with. A company he knew needed a Reception Desk for the lobby of their office that would look good with the surrounding area that was finished in Granite and Marble. There was nothing on the market that would work and could handle granite as a work surface. So check out the photos and see what we came up with.

This is a wrap around reception desk that will handle Granite & Marble on the work surface. So this was to be built very strong to handle the weight of the stone. I'm gluing the frame together here. Cutting out the main work surface support.

Connecting the outside layers of plywood together. Now I'm attaching the outer skin to the desk. Attaching the main work surface support to the desk.

Now the inner skin is put in place. This covers up the support beams. All the seams are smoothed off. A special coating is applied to the wooden surface. This is to stop my finish from being absorbed into the wood.

My finish is applied. The lower lip on the desk gets a Marble kick plate. All completed. A Marble top with a black granite work surface. A side view of desk.
