Cool desk

This is pretty slick. Wonder how he creates the peaks and valleys? CNC?

My guess is that he suffers from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) where everything must be in it's place and it makes him twitch if the stuff is not in it's place... still kind of cool though.

That's my guess, probably with something like this: http://digitalwoodcarver.com/

Meh, total bullshit, is my take. ;)
Such single purpose design, which will become obsolete and dysfunctional with the next version of the ever changing tech device market, is not what I would call "beautifully functional".
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Also, simpler is better and more versatile.
I remember at the last house that my wife wanted me to build something that would house a number of kitchen items close to the stove in a very small kitchen. I worked hard to come up with a design that would let her store a number of items next to the stove, in a space just a few inches wide.
Then one day, while doing something else, I spotted a couple items in a store. These were organizers with magnets. So I just bought them and stuck them on the refrigerator. That took care of 75% of what I needed. A very simple item was made for the surface and I was done.
It never occurred to me at that time that a small, inexpensive item at the store would do the trick. Being older and wiser now, I always look out there in the world for a solution first. And if I can't find something, then, and only then, do I go to a design and build process.

My first computer and printer, 1986. I built a desk with a drawer to hold the printer, specifically that printer. Had to gut it a few years later when the 24 pin printers came out. ;~(
I'm sure glad that my walnut panel entertainment wall will eventually accommodate a 90" flat screen when I tire of the 70"er.
By then holograms will fill the room and the wall mount for the flat screen will be obsolete. LOL

All that means is that you're too practical. Or maybe, the table maker lives in the here and now, not so much for the future.
In any event, it looks good but is unpractical for me too. I like my desks to be flat for everything. I was looking at the legs and the slab of wood, but creating all those dips and valleys, not my style.

I agree.
However, think of doing it with replaceable modules that would follow the changing device market. That way users could pay through the nose not only for the original desk, but also everytime they got a new iToy.
Its not a new idea, but it might be the first time it would be applied to furiture.

It is cool but with tech changing at the pace it does it is probably obsolete.
CNC for sure.

Looks like one of my maple coffee tables. Except its 50 -60 years old. Looks like skinny ties are back in too, LOL Now I'll have an up to date coffee table, at last.
