This is a design I worked up a while back and it’s actually still a work in progress. I’ve seen so much great work of the Arts & Craft style by the other Jocks that I’m hoping I can get some helpful feedback from folks.
The single drawer chest is actually intended to be removable and would interlock with the stretchers (not drawn in yet) of the base. It would be sort of like big tongue and groove joints I guess you could say. I think it gives a nice balance to the whole thing and lessens the extreme height. It would be about 23” wide x 78” tall x 20” deep as drawn now. The joinery would be mostly mortise and tenon as seen in the ‘x-ray’ version pic.
I would like some feedback on the ‘chest’, the arcs (should they be a little more flat?), and any modifications that might better drive home the a&c influence. Admittedly, I have not done much research on the subject of Arts and Crafts mirrors as of late.
The weird shape on the front of the drawer has something to do with how SketchUp draws the textures. It is not meant to look that way. Thanks for looking!
