    Benjamin O'Hare's Woodworking LLC
    I am a woodworker based out of Doylestown and have primarily been making coffee tables, dining room tables, benches, headboards, etc.....but have recently begun making lap desks out of locally sourced black walnut, spruce, red oak, pin oak, and some reclaimed wood that I drove to Maine to obtain from a company that only sell boards/planks that are pre 1900.bAll of these are the same size, and I have based the design off of one that my Great Grandfather built many years ago.....but the dimensions oddly work perfectly for setting your computer/notepads on while working from home in your favorite comfy chair! I literally have replicated his design over and over, and my Instagram account instagram/benjaminohares.com, will show how high of a demand there are for these...and some of my other work. These custom/built-to-order lap desks can be made from any wood of your choosing (as long as I have it in stock,) and the price is $125 (plus ten dollars for shipping) regardless of what state you lie in. Here are a couple pictures of the original one, that I based the design off of, one made from reclaimed barn wood from Kennebunk, Maine, and one made out of black walnut as well. I currently have three available....one black walnut, the reclaimed one shown, and I am almost finished with another one made from cherry. Again theses are all locally sourced, weigh roughly 15 pounds depending on the wood, and are 3 by 1.5 feet in length/width, and the thickness varies between 1.5 to 2 inches....also depending on the wood. Please allow one week for me to build your desk ( it will be shipped sober if possible,) as each one requires multiple layers of a clear combination of uncolored danish oil and mineral spirits, along with multiple 24 hour drying periods, followed by more sanding. These are beautiful custom pieces, and if you have specific requests, please do not hesitate to ask (an slot for to prop your IPhone, an elevated portion one side for writing on, or whatever you would like...just email me directly to specify these in detail.) Also feel free to view some of my other work on my instagram - benjaminohares or message me directly. -shipping is a flat $10 rate no matter where you are in the US! -deliver is free if you are relatively close to Doylestown/Bucks County! -international orders are a flat $40 rate! Payment Options: My preferred method of payment is through Paypal: paypal.me/benjaminohares (link that will go directly to my paypal account,) or Cash, or Venmo.....sorry, no checks. -please note that the first picture shown is made from 1800's reclaimed barn wood from Mine, and the remainder of the photos are not complete....the second one shown is black walnut and I will update once I have additional/completed photos...

    Description

    I am a woodworker based out of Doylestown and have primarily been making coffee tables, dining room tables, benches, headboards, etc. I have recently begun making lap desks made from locally sourced black walnut, spruce, red oak, pin oak, reclaimed wood that I drove to Maine (all pre 1900 barn wood) to obtain, as well as other varieties when available. All of these are the same size, and I have based the design off of one that my Great Grandfather built many years ago. The dimensions work very well for setting your computer or notepads on while working from home in your favorite comfortable chair, or even in the office as a nice alternative to your usual desk. I have literally replicated his design. Please see my Instagram account for additional examples: instagram/benjaminohares.com. These custom, built-to-order lap desks can be made from any wood of your choosing. Black walnut, cherry, and the reclaimed wood are the most commonly requested and the most accessible, but feel free to request whatever type of wood you would like, and Ill do my best to find whatever you're interested in. The price is $125 regardless of what state you are in, and regardless of the type of wood you choose. The dimensions are all the same as well, but I am open to minor modifications within reason (3 feet long by 1.5 feet wide, and roughly 2 inches thick.) Here are a couple pictures: first is one made from reclaimed barn wood from Kennebunk, ME, and the second is one made made entirely from black walnut. Again these are all locally sourced, and weigh roughly 15 pounds. Please allow one week for me to build your lap desk, as each one requires multiple layers of a clear combination of uncolored danish oil and mineral spirits, along with multiple 24 hour drying periods, followed by sessions of sanding. These are beautiful, custom pieces, but if you have specific requests, please do not hesitate to ask - a slot to prop your IPhone, an elevated portion one side for writing on, etc... Also, feel free to view some of my other work on my instagram: https://www.instagram.com/benjaminohares/ -shipping costs vary depending on where you are... -I also ship internationally... -I will personally deliver if you are relatively close to Doyelstown or Bucks County for $25 only! Payment Options: My preferred method of payment is through Paypal, Venmo, or cash.
