Excellent. The curves in the legs and drawers add a very nice touch. Have you thought about adding some type of screen that will blend with the case colors to hide the electronics? Also, placing some tall art on top of the console or lowering the television to bridge the large white space between the two might add to the decor.

rrdesigns: I thought about hiding the electronics but it adds nuisances (I’m trying to rent the condo in which I placed this furniture). I also wanted to add one of my crazier woodturnings on top but decided against it (too fragile in a vacation rental place). Thanks for the suggestions, though.

Something to keep in mind is that the pictures were taken with a 24mm lens that makes the space seem much larger than it actually is. The way the room actually looks, the console, TV and decoration relationship is much better. A 50mm lens (human eye is 50mm equivalent) would not have covered both the TV and the console (room not large enough).

WOW. That is fantastic. Love the curved legs and how it blends with the bathroom vanity.

A really challenging design, Alin.

I can’t tell for sure…. Are the legs tapered and curved on all four sides or just three? I can’t imagine the process.

Charlie, the front legs are shaped on 3 sides. The forth is straight so I could cut the joinery. The back legs are only shaped sideways.

Broglea and twokidsnosleep, thanks for your comments.

That’s amazing…I dig those legs and the descending frown of the drawers. Very creative.

Willie1031: the difficulty with the curved drawers in this piece is that they have to be curved inside as well. I actually did not realize this until I could not pull them out and I had to cut them (thanks God my bandsaw can cut 11.5”).

All this beautiful furniture in a rental. I hope you don’t someone in and trash the place.

I made a computer table for one of my sons with very similar leg taperings, which I cut on the bandsaw and cleaned up on the bobbin sander. I love your’s very much well done alovely design and finish too. Alistair
