INSPIRATION: Joe Munson finds design inspiration everywhere including the sea. To create a sturdy yet elegant worktable for a leading Kansas City photographer, Joe Munson Studios fabricated a smooth white solid surface top that appears to float on a steel and walnut base constructed like the hull of a boat. The standing-height worktable features thirteen drawers cantilevered from a central steel spine that spans two heavy gauge steel plates; drawer slides are concealed beneath the drawer boxes. Heavy-duty medical casters quickly lock/unlock with a quick toe flip and feature custom hubcaps that round out the sleek and purposeful design.
