Project Information

This one had lots of color and curves. The three drawers on the right bowed out, the two doors in the middle bowed in and then the little curved bottom cabinet on the left end. There was a number of different veneers used birds eye maple, burl walnut to name a few. Don't remember all of them its been to long ago that this was done. All the bright colors reds and blues and others was dye stains.

These are scanned pictures so the quality isn't very good, sorry!

Thanks for looking.

Les, once again, very impressive work. Man, you really need to write some How-To blog entries on some of this stuff. I'd really like to see how you handle getting a curved door to fit right, taking springback and such into account.

Les,

This is a very interesting and unique piece. I couldn't imagine how to handle fitting the curved drawers and doors. I am looking forward to seeing that post.

Les,

It's official. I have to hate you now. No offense intended…I just have to hate anyone with that much talent ;). That piece, while not my personal style, is incredibly done. It's obviously NOT a project for the beginner or the weak of heart! Nice job!

I like your job very much. Would you answer a couple of questions? I mean them honestly. They have to do with some important doubts I have to deal with every time I try a new design. In this case, did you design the volume and the external aspect? Do you try some kind of balance between the different elements: basic form or volume, colours, grains? I mean, do you think it as a whole? What do you think about counting each element separately and as a part of the whole? I often have to manage with the doubt if I have included too many elements or not. Thank you for your time.
