    Somebody Build This!



    I designed this piece for a friend. Too modern for him. I thought if someone else was interested, I'd flesh out the design.

    A packing crate with a metal stand?? Sorry, couldn't resist.

    I like modern, just not in this house. Would be fun to build though.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    That's my problem, too. I don't know that I could get away with it in our house either. wouldn't go with the early Salvation Army decor. Well, come to think of it, if I did use a packing crate....

    I really like it Dave. We need a new dresser, but like you, I'm not sure if it'd work with our existing stuff. (We have a late 20th century hand-me-down theme at our place.) Still, I'll show it to LOML and see if it sparks any interest. I still can never tell what furniture designs she'll like and which ones she won't.

    I see that being built with Curly Maple and Ebony legs/bands... Should be outstanding. Nix the metal as it is to retro 60's Neo design.

    I like the design but have spent awhile moving my house towards mission and A&C. LOML is anti-clean-line on almost anything so I guess I'm not your guy but I do like it.

    At first I thought it was a mini-drying kiln. Sorry, but that's what I first thought.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Hey, stop picking on Dave!

    Dave, looks to me like the sort of stuff that Mark Singer has built and posted over the years.

    ...art

    (ps: sorry, not really my style either)
