I’ve been working on these for almost a year now. As with any serious project, I build a prototype/model out of cardboard full scale.
The main reason for the cardboard is so that we can slice/dice/tape/glue the prototype into what we want. The prototype in the photo above is in its 3rd or 4th incarnation in cardboard alone.
The top section contains a lazy susan with dividers to hold up books – both of us like to read in bed, and jump from one book to another depending on our mood. Before anyone asks – yes, the books would fly off if we spun it fast.
The curved front drawers were the hardest part of this project. I didn’t even bother to take photos of all the approaches I tried – suffice to say that the project lapsed for a few months while I tried to figure out how best to approach the problem.
Thanks for all the help! I’m on my way. More later on.
