Standing Desk
Welcome to your new Opendesk
Every piece of Opendesk furniture is made to order by independent local makers. Opendesk makers produce
products on-demand using digital fabricators (CNC- machines) combined with traditional craft skills - working from
designs contributed by a global community of designers and hosted on opendesk.cc.

The product you have in your hands is therefore the result of a new model sitting at the union of the internet, new
advancements in digital technologies, and age-old making techniques. We call this Open Making.

After Care Advice : looking after your Opendesk
Overtime your Opendesk furniture will get some bumps and bruises through use. Small scratches and stains
can be rectified by a little bit of sanding and oiling.

Start by sanding the damaged surface with some P240 grit sand paper, once the surface is smooth, move to a
P320 grit sand paper. On a clean and dry surface gently apply the Oslo oil, wipe off and leave to dry. Do a final
sand with P320 and wipe down to clean. Be careful to sand evenly across a large area than the damage in
order to maintain a level surface.
