G&G Style Credenza

I made this piece to match the design of a G&G drop front desk they did in white ash. The drawers are laid out in a golden mean progression, such that the top right drawer width is 1.618 x the left drawer width, and it’s height is 1/1.618 x height of the bottom drawer.

Comments welcome,
Clint

Nice credenza and you followed the golden rectangle!! Do you have a Fibonacci gauge?

To do those kind of layouts, I put together an Excel spreadsheet that will calculate the linear progression of values from least to most for a specified number of steps, the total value to be divided, and the ratio of least to most.

Thanks for posting, that is a unique piece. Very interesting grain patterns, neat joinery especially on the sides.

In retrospect, I think it wolud be more attractive with a more subdued grain. I added the ‘butterflys’ and ‘through tenons’ for appearance. They’re non-functional.

Alright! a Fibonacci guy! What I like about this piece is where you started…G&G…and where you ended up! You have kept the integrity of visual motion in both the wood and design. I look forward to what’s inside that is coming out! LOL

Analytical and creative…great combination I hope to emulate!
