French oak reception desk

Completed work – Reclaimed French oak reception desk

Steve McIlveen Completed work

It’s been a busy few months with a house move and the completion of this reception desk for Good Energy in Chippenham.

The brief from the client was for an Eco friendly reception desk and display / storage cabinet for the reception area of their head office in Chippenham. Good Energy are a green energy company with strong green credentials so it was important that all materials were from sustainable sources.

The oak cladding was sourced from Chauncey’s flooring in Bristol and is French oak reclaimed from retired railway freight carriages. The veneered sections are 100% FSC european oak veneers sourced from Mundy veneers and laid on 100% FSC mdf boards.

The whole desk is finished in a semi mat treatex oil, a mixture of natural oils which give a lovely finish.

In the next few weeks I’ll be posting another two units for Good Energy’s board room, made from American Walnut.
