Standing Desks Create a Healthy Workplace

History of Desks While the standing desk is a recent phenomenon, desks and work surfaces have been utilized by humans for centuries. The earliest written history of the desk can be traced back to Medieval times in which illustrations show the first desks being used for reading and writing.

Working with hardwoods

I was helping in the shop today and I was reminded why we work with Premium American hardwoods. I was applying linseed oil to pieces for new tables and the wood made me stop and appreciate the natural beauty. I decided to take a photo of oak and walnut pieces that had oil on one half of it….
