AUBURN — On Friday, high-end furniture maker Thos. Moser and outdoor retailer L.L.Bean announced a collaboration: the creation of a Limited Edition Fly-Tying Desk, handmade from American black cherry with 20-plus dovetailed drawers.

How much? $12,500, plus $750 shipping, making it the most expensive item on llbean.com.

And how limited? Just five, and two have already sold, according to an L.L.Bean spokesman.

Mac McKeever called it a thoughtful collaboration between two iconic Maine companies.

“Our expert fishing product designers and developers worked closely with Thos. Moser’s craftspeople to develop a one-of-a-kind desk that is functionally innovative, combined with a stunning and timeless visual appeal,” he said.

Noted features in its online description: six cedar-lined drawers, Marmoleum inlay to protect from dents and a “custom spool case specially designed by our fly-tying experts for intelligent spool management.”

Each desk is made in Thos. Moser’s Auburn workshop and comes with a numbered plaque and both companies’ logos.

A showroom model can be seen at L.L.Bean’s flagship store in Freeport.

A news release from Thos. Moser said that though this run is limited, the desk can be “custom ordered and customized” directly from Thos. Moser as well.
