This is my last commitment: the client asked for a really small sized furniture to be placed in a reduced space to contain the couple’s under-wear and complements. Four drawers for her and four drawers for him. Beyond the half lap joints (there are a lot in this furniture), I decided to put some interest spaces on top of the last drawer and under the bottom of the last one. I designed a way to customize the drawers division using an element with an “L” form. I built two pieces per drawer. You can use it, placing it if needed, or not, just putting it aside. If you find it valuable, use it but please mention and link to this project. The clients where very pleased with the result. I hope you enjoy it.
Este es el último encargo: el cliente me pidio un mueble pequeño para colocar en un espacio reducido para guardar la ropa interior y complementos de una pareja. Cuatro cajones para ella y otros cuatro para él. Además de las uniones a media madera (hay un montón en este mueble), decidí crear dos espacios interesantes. Uno por encima del primer cajón y otro por debajo del último. También diseñé una solución para personalizar la división de los cajones. Son dos elementos con forma de “L” que pueden usarse o apartarse dentro del cajón. Si crees que vale la pena, usala, y añade una mención y un link a este proyecto. Los clientes quedaron muy satisfechos. Espero que les guste.

What a structure, and what a lot of wood! It resembles nothing so much as a modernist apartment building. Really like that space at the bottom and those floating dividers. Your half laps are great.
