a clean simple design exeisize made from pine a two drawer box and the legs just bolt onto the box for easier transport and the two legs can bolt together to make a high stool.
the front and back of the cabinet have the same angle as the legs with an beveled bottem edge.
so with the angles and the bevels i tried to play with visuale weght.
the drawer opens by two finger pulls on the bottem bevel in the center so you cant see them.
miratone blaze red stain and watered down white low sheen house paint and sealed with polyurathain clear coat

I don’t know why you would ever want to transport it or turn it into a stool, but this, by itself, is an astonishing table. A knockout colour combo with very pretty proportions and an elegant balance. I like those recessed aprons showing a trace of the colour from the side view. An instant favourite.

Great product for knockdown shipping. I get it. Only for 4 bolts for the end user to assemble it.
Very nice.

Your a legend Geoff!! Keep it coming mate. Don’t stop now. Plan an exhibition of your work. Aim for Milan. Help me with a few words to get through to our leaders at UCOL that this is the outcome we want for our graduate students.
