Ten Foot Reception Desk
Ten Foot Reception Desk
This reception desk is intended for organizations that want to make an impression on everyone entering their lobby. It is ten feet (3 m) side to side, four feet (1.2 m) front to back, and forty-eight inches (122 cm) tall. The one shown in the photos is made from solid cherry wood. Although they can be made out of a variety of different types of lumber.
The desk is designed to be staffed by someone who needs to organize and distribute paper messages, packages, and mail while processing electronic messages, phone calls, and printer files. There is plenty of room and access to electrical, phone, and data outlets.
The Ten Foot Reception Desk is too big to ship via UPS or most freight delivery services. It has to be delivered and installed by David. For more information please contact email@example.com.

Custom Design Process
Custom design projects start with reaching out to me with an inquiry about an idea for a custom project. Most inquiries are done through email, but in-person meetings and text messages are also common.
During the initial conversation I take notes and gather data using questionnaires. I use questionnaires to be consistent and improve the customer’s overall experience. The questionnaires are short and help me avoid wasting the customers time as the project moves forward.
At some point the conversation develops to the point where a formal agreement is needed to outline the responsibilities and the scope of the work. I believe in doing as much in writing as possible. I make a draft agreement that will include design time and drawings as well as the price to build the work. Delivery, or shipping if the project is too far to deliver myself, and installation, is included in the agreement. The agreement also offers the price, time frame, and detailed description of the project.
After the agreement is signed and a deposit received I prepare detailed design documents using a mix of hand drawings, digital images, photos and material lists. Larger design projects involving one or more rooms have more documentation than a single piece of furniture. Floor plans and other drawings are used to illustrate the details of the design. I use SketchUp and Layout software programs and Excel spreadsheets to present much of the information.
Getting to Work
The design drawings go through one or more revisions, decisions are made and work begins!
