I realize my website has only a few built items, and that few of them really appear as “furniture”, so I have been thinking up some new designs to try and show my interests and what I am capable of. I’ve been working on a credenza in a style similar to the nightstand that I built this summer. This has been on my mind for a long time that can be used as a media cabinet for stereo and speakers, music/movie storage, TV stand, etc. This is a prime example of my mid-century inspirations.
Following this design, I would like to make a sideboard for liquor and glassware.
Of course, I also have some coffee table designs and matching or similar end tables in mind. Below is a 3D image of one design I am particularly excited about, and hope to develop and expand it to other related pieces.
I envision it to be walnut and maple, with drawers that push and pull from both sides. I am still deciding what sort of joinery to employ, as I think through dovetails might be too expressive for this modern shape… but I love exposing the joinery, so we’ll see what works out best. I’ve designed a matching end table/magazine rack, and I am working on some larger designs that could carry on the theme of the design.
I’ll check back in with more ideas as they come to me. I really hope this month I get to focus on one or two and really start building!
