Well the boss has tasked me with a different project than the bedroom. Last year we put laminate flooring down in the dining room and our office in preparation for putting builtins in the office. Nothing has been mentioned of them lately, until I started designing the bedroom furniture.
Originally we were going to use kraftmaid cabinets to do the rooms, and I had a pretty nice setup…
But I wasnt really happy with all my options and things we had to do ‘sort of’....
so I have taken my plans and started designing my furniture for it in sketchup. I usually do this to first get an estimate of how much wood and the expense…then I start refining it for actual dimensioning and such.
This is the base of the cabinet on the left side of the room as you look at this picture. I would be on the right wall as you enter the room. It will NOT take up the whole wall as the window is kind of close to the wall on that side, plus I have some network patching over there that is still in use as well as some other things that wont be moved.
So as before is the sketchup file. I am looking for criticisms on the design of the furniture. Not really how I could make it prettier in sketchup or anything…Things that I may be missing(other than the drawers :) ) or ways I could do it different. I will be adding shelving to the top of this piece. But that will be in a later blog.
