This beautiful writing desk is made from hand selected quarter sawn Scottish Oak from Perthshire, and premium grade birch ply for a robust writing surface, as it's to be used by a young child. There is a single full width drawer, which slides on modern ball bearing drawer runners for a very smooth operation. The finish is a very hard wearing oil based on a blend of natural oils and waxes, providing scuff and scratch resistance as well as protection from liquid spills.
