This big desk with everted flanges is 2.5m long, of which the big size is very rarely seen among existing Ming furniture. The core veneer, the tenon-bearing frame and the aprons are all made out of whole timbers, and the everted flanges are added to the desk. The floating panel, in particular, though mortised and tenoned to the frame, is made of a whole timber, looking bright and smooth like jade. The plain aprons extend to all four sides of the desk like a framework, defining the outline of the panel. The aprons make the panel look thicker, while the ends of the aprons make the four desk legs look wider. Outside the four legs there are two layers of yang lines in the middle, and again yang lines follow the double edges. The lines are smooth and natural, so that the entire desk would not look too stiff because of the heavy materials. The four legs are on continuous floor stretchers instead of directly on the floor. The four feet of the continuous floor stretchers are also added later, which are also easy to be replaced with new ones in case they are spoiled by moist ground. The design is full of ingenuity. The support is straight and vertical. Patterns of “Ru-yi cloud heads” are carved and inlayed on side panels, with upward cloud heads, looking robust, and the contours are of yang lines. The side panels outside the cloud heads are four-ring aprons and panels, fastening the legs. Without fastened and firm legs, serious consequences may arise with such a large desk. Therefore, function of the side panels can never be underrated.
