It would be fair to say that, once this idea had popped into my head, I became obsessed with it.
And, try as I might, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
Which, frankly, kept doing my head in.
So I decided the only cure was to build it.
So I did.
In small doses I made my drawings.
And in one frantic afternoon I cut all the pieces (with my new super-duper Japanese pull-saw, so I guess this is a “hand tools only” project – a first for me)
A trial fit indicated it might work.
A few more days gluing, which was quite easy in the cosmic scheme of my work since everything is at right-angles (another first for me, I think)...
I think I’m cured of this now, so I can get back to things constructed from triangles.
CCP (cheap crappy pine) – 30mm x 30mm
690mm long, 260mm wide, 230mm high
No finish – I like the feel and look of it as it is.
