    Anyone For Mid-Century Modern

    This is my morning SketchUp exercise. Gotta keep practicing. Larry, you promised to hook me up with a guy...





    Looks like a good candidate for loose tenon joinery.

    I like this design, Dave. Has a sort of Danish feel to me, without being Danish Danish.

    Larry, I'd still like to talk with him.

    Thanks, Vaughn. I like the light feel of it.

    That would be kind of boring. I'm ready for a lively discussion. I suppose I might as well just talk to myself, then.

    I guess Mid Century Modern doesn't trip that many triggers but here's another piece I doodled out during lunch.

    I like it. Interesting. I need to design an entertainment center and it's just a bit too wide for 2 doors, and too narrow for 3, but 2 doors and some drawers might be very interesting.

    Anyone else get an early 70's "Better Homes and Gardens" vibe out of that piece?

    Thanks Brent. I've got a different base idea to try out under the case.

    Art, I guess that early 70s thing is kind of the idea. Or maybe even going back to the late 50s and the 60s.

    I found a place that does the hairpin steel legs that were popular back then. They want a pretty penny for them, too.
