A beautiful little shop called “Consignment” has opened in a little town in New Zealand called Feilding. We are helping along with our students , to provide some quality alternative furniture. Alternative in that you won’t find furniture like it in our country and quality….well I hope it speaks for its self.

I do need to acknowledge Brian Hubel who is the creater of the original “Slim” which I love and has inspired this project.

Alright dovetails where you might not look!

Nice piece!

No way have I given up LJ’s. The reality is I have 17 students this year and not a lot of time to make my own stuff. I have been a bit slack and probably could put up a few more. You look like you have been busy Doc.

Andy,

Getting serious. Can send you a PM or email. Just designed and built a chainsaw mill bench. My “bucket list.”

Then after fixing the toilet…again I will attempt to mill some logs and to finally design and build some of my ideas.

Glad you’re busy, and you’re back! :)

Realy awesome design. I admire, you made dovetails even there where you can’t see them. Those home made pulls are excellent. I totaly agree on quality statement!

Good looking piece and details and very well made .
But I have an issue with the sharp angled edges and the corners ,I would prefer rounded edges and corners which are less prone to damage and more user friendly .

Hi Michelletwo,
Answer to your question, There is a tee nut in behind the box section and hex nuts that attach the sides. Makes it easy to disassemble for freighting.
