Here’s my lastest project that I have done. It is a low coffee table. The top is removable and the bases can slide into any configuration that you can think of. OF course you can’t go to far the end or the top will fall off. There are 2 frame and panel doors on the bigger unit. Thiese fold down and reveal a cabinet with a drawer to hold your remotes and things. It’s designed for when you have guest and have to clear off the coffee table all the junk can go in the cabinet and all the nice books can go on top.

Interesting, Kaleo. Are these photo’s or renderings? Have you built this yet? To use the Aussie term, what’s the timber?

I, too, thought that it was a drawing.. but then you say that it was your latest project!
Love the “quick – hide the junk” cabinet. Looks like it would hold a lot of stuff.
I also love the ability to change it… very cool idea

well I guess I can’t hide it any longer. It’s not a drawing but it is a 1:5 scale model that I built. So it is the lastest project just not full size. I tried my hand at photo shop but they didn’t come out to well. I will be building this and hopefully a couple of end tables and or a sofa table in the next 5 weeks. I’ll keep you all posted.

Don the timber is Celery-top pine and Tasmanian Blackwood.

Very interesting concept Kaleo. I wonder if you made the top as a curved shape would it be better. Keeping the same width as you have now, but a large curve, like part of an oval. Or, maybe even an S curve instead, if you were going for that contemporary look. Thinking about it, an S curve with rounded ends, and rounded “legs” might be a neat way to go. But, what you have done here is great too!

Thanks guys, I built the model just to see what it might look like. And with only the week to design and draw up the plans and make a model I had to design something not to complicated. Plus with 5 weeks to build, which might seem like a long time. But we have only truely abnout 3 days a week to build which really means 15 days to make it I knew it had to be “KISS” Keep it Simple Stupid.
