Hooker Triesta 60-in. Writing DeskItem#: HN-HOOK881
The charm of vintage-inspired writing desks is hard to resist, but they're often too small to get today's jobs done. Unless, of course, you're sitting down at the Hooker Triesta 60-in. Writing Desk, sized generously for big projects but styled traditionally for antique and letter-writing lovers.
This elegant desk is crafted with durable hardwood solids and carefully selected maple veneers over engineered wood, a design that resists expansion and moisture retention to ensure long-lasting strength. The gleaming cherry-finished desktop tops a black-finished base, made a little more intricate with rub-through accents, subtle paneling, polished hardware, and ridged detail around the drawer fronts, sides, and legs.
Below the desktop, a center drop-front drawer can hold supplies or be configured to lie flat, ideally supporting laptops. Two utility drawers - one on either side - are the places to tuck writing utensils, stationary, and supplies. All drawers feature English or French dovetailing, smooth full-extension glides, and sturdy plywood bottoms and sides for easy, full-capacity use. Built-in levelers keep the desk steady, and a finished back butts neatly against walls.

Construction of Hooker Furniture
Hooker Furniture chooses solid woods and select wood veneers over wood frames to construct their high-quality pieces. By using wood veneer, pieces can be given a decorative look that can't be achieved with the use of solid wood alone. The veneers add beautiful accents of color and design to the pieces, and are placed over engineered wood product for strength. All Hooker wood veneers are made from renewable resources and are located primarily on the flat surfaces of the furniture, such as the case tops and sides.
Each Hooker furniture piece is finished using up to 30 different steps, including 13 steps of hand-sanding and accenting. Physical distressing is done by hand. Pieces receive two to three coats of solid lacquer to create extra depth and add durability to the finish. Each case frame is assembled using strong mortise-and-tenon joints, which are then reinforced by mechanical fasteners and glue. On most designs, end panels extend to the floor to add strength and stability. Panel-style furniture features strong panel and frame construction to help avoid warping.
Your Hooker furniture features finished case interiors to eliminate unsightly "raw wood" and to help protect items you may store inside drawers or cabinets. Drawer parts are given a urethane or lacquer finish to create smooth action and durability. All drawers use dovetails, either English or French, for years of problem-free use. Drawer bottoms are constructed from plywood and attached to the plywood drawer sides via the use of hot glue and/or wood glue blocks. Most drawers are full width, depth, and height to provide the maximum amount of storage space.

Comments about Hooker Triesta 60-in. Writing Desk:
The only reason I cannot give five stars is that the desk I received had a few dents on the front edge. It is extremely well made like other Hooker produducts I own and I highly recommend this desk.
