Thread: Phase II : The night stands

  1. #1

    Phase II : The night stands

    Well we just finalized the design for the night stands. Very similar in design just scaled down. There will be 2 drawers in each one but will only have one drawer front attached to the bottom drawer. Of course that's still subject to change but that's what the boss wants and she gets what she wants.

    If someone could refresh my memory on down loading a sketchup file I would appreciate it.

    And the pulls that are going on it. They are actually a bit darker than what the picture shows. Couldn't figure out how to import it into sketchup.

    Alan i went back to look at the bed. I would like to see bed and stand in same pic.

    Just my 5cents from the peanut gallery but i think its too plain by comparison to the bed. I dunno i would like to see the curve in the bed picked up in say a door front on the stand or something.
    I know its got the tops on the legs and the wood matching and legs but the bed headboard has a signature design shape that i dont see transfered through to the side stands. Dunno i aint a designer, not musically inclined, and certainly not an artist. So take this with less than a pinch of salt.

    I appreciate the constructive criticism Rob.

    I have spent the past few weeks trying to think of a way to incorporate it with out it being to busy and detracting from the bed. The scale is just to small to incorporate all those elements.

    I also needed to work within the limits Norma set as far as how high she wanted them.

    Then I brought Norma and our daughter Stacy back over to the computer to look at it again today and go over some of the proposed changes and they both unanimously said no and to keep it the way it is. You know how it is the customer is always right and she knows what she wants.

    Now when I get to the dresser that will be a different story as I'll be able to keep most of it to the same scale as the bed and incorporate more of the details from the bed into the dresser but that's phase III!

    Well I went out in the shop this weekend and got started on the night stands. Printed out a measured drawing.

    I didn't want to wait 2 weeks to get to Clarke's to get some 10/4 walnut for the legs so I picked thru the scraps I had from the bed and resawed it to make the legs. I just need to veneer where I notched the legs.

    Here are a few of the joinery. All the tenons were cut on the pantorouter and all the mortises on my slot mortiser. For being home made machines they are a dream to use!

    I agree. Very nice work. I will be an interested observer when you veneer the curve of the legs.
