This project involved the supply & installation of a 6m diameter curved reception desk constructed from Euro Oak veneered MDFs, flexi MDF and pearl grey laminated MDFs.

This was made from European Veneered Oak with Solid Oak Edging.  The reception desk was constructed and assembled at the Falkus Joinery Workshop on a special levelling platform to make sure when installing the desk that the joints and mitres are seamless.
