A note from about 18 months ago in my “Lille brown book of thunks” has the line, “Interlocking Us” and this small sketch…
Well, for those last 18 months I haven’t really known how to turn that idea into a project and then, suddenly, late one night, this bit of craziness popped into my head.
It took a while to thrash out the details and sizes, and included passing by this version, which I think might make a fun “traffic light” lamp for another build sometime in the future…
Of course, it being the run-up to the Christmas period, and with all those parties that one has to go to at this time of the year, it took a few weeks to actually finish – the final coat of oil was put on on Christmas morning.
This was supposed to be my masterwork, as usual, but it hasn’t turned out quite as well as I’d hoped – not enough contrast between the jatobá verticals on the drawers and the mahogany – not enough contrast between the fumed oak and the mahogany – the two “U”s and the fact that they aren’t really joined isn’t as visible as I’d hoped since it’s all a bit “tight”, etc etc
Still, it’s done now and 3 drawers (which you can open either way) are ready to receive stuff.
Jatobá, fumed oak, ash, mahogany, CCP.
500mm high, 300mm across, 220mm deep.
Finished with linseed oil.
