Making the Desk Tray
Our desk tray organizes and integrates your things into your workspace, simplifying your process. Check out how this integral piece of our Desk Shelf System comes together in our workshop!
The design of our desk tray is all about bringing materials together—bent aluminum is rigid and strong, while natural cork is soft and light. Together, they make a tray that is simple and effective, whether it’s out on the table or tucked into our desk shelf.
Before we put the cork into the mill to be machined, we cure it to a precise temperature and humidity in an oven, to ensure accurate sizing. Once cured, it’s off to be machined.
Within our desk shelf system, or on its own, the desk tray is designed to hold just the right amount of stuff. All nicely squared away, all within reach.

The desk tray is one part of our desk shelf system. Each piece is available individually, allowing you to mix and match to dial in your desk.
BEHIND THE SCENES
Home At Last
Grovemade has a new home, a permanent place to pursue our blend of design and manufacturing. Over the course of 13 months, we found a space, bought it, built it out, got permitting, and moved all of our stuff three miles north, from our old space in the Central Eastside Industrial district to our new neighborhood in North Portland.
