I was ordered to make prototype credenza…to analize design and it’s components, to see available and best suitable materials. Also, to see possibilities to make all parts on CNC maschine. All joints were screwed. It’s mainly made of firwood, upper back 10mm pine playwood, bottom back 10mm chipboard, drawer bottoms 3mm MDF. Upper doors were made from one piece, with jigsaw (there was no need to make them as they should be made, by glueing parts). Ofcourse, there are no glass and finish on that credenza, since it is just prototype. Dimensions 110×180 (25cm upper part, 35cm bottom part).

That’s a good looking credenza Ivan. What will you end up doing with the prototype? Surely someone will want that even if it’s not made with exotic hardwood.

Very nicely done Ivan.
I hope someone can keep it after you’ve dual the calculations.

Fine work on that on.
Did you CNC the parts?
Yes it’s almost a shame, but if it becomes many after, it is fine. As an architect I’m used to making models / prototypes, that will be trashed, but be the way to see details and problems.

Looks great Ivan. Those drawer fronts look perfectly lined up, are they false fronts or were you measurements just that good?

Never thought.if using CNC to carve door fronts, makes sense especially if they will be painted. Love the arcs on the doors, that really adds an aesthetic appeal to it

The prototype looks to be a success. Nice design and it should be a winner. Maybe you get to keep the proyotype for all your work.

Ivan that is awesome. A Pine prototype, does that mean I have to call you Norm now :-)

Nice work. That is some fine looking firewood.
