Not really a blog entry.

I might be doing a project for a friend in the near future. I needed someplace to gather ideas on the important elements of the design. I have not built any of this…yet.

Ive seen some of the hardware used on the first piece on the Lee Valley site. Those benches are awesome, I may try one of those next.

I was particuallarlly fond of the benches too. The benches are in my wheelhouse as far as what I like to build, but the architecual elements are something I might pass on. I might build them even if UI have to pass on the project just becaus I love the joinery.

Sorry for being vague but I am not sure how much my friend would want public at this point (one of those things).

I love the hardware on the first piece. I am sure it is spendy, but I see it as the best part of that piece, and “makes it”. The circular hinges and pulls. Not my normal style, but way cool.

I think you could make the hardware pretty easily. I would hammer and cast it from brass.
