The folded aluminum trough that lines Tomas Kral's Homework desk can be used for storage and display.
An aluminum cloth is placed over an ash frame table and then folded down around the edges to form a storage trough. Sandwiched in-between the ash desktop, the trough functions as a shelf for propping up books and displaying photos and provides extra storage space for hiding away clutter.
