This set of modern furniture was built to go along with the original coffee table that I did.
This set of five pieces is designed with the same floating panel. The corner unit has the top floating off of it because I turned the back into a display case. It was going to be too large if I didn’t break it up. Here you see all the pieces pushed together in my shop. Chairs and couches are intended to go between the pieces. I regret not getting good finish photos.
I have a vacuum press from Vacupress Systems and use Unibond 800 for my veneer work. These pieces I had to veneer myself. The original was made from the cache of curly maple plywood I purchased as part of the entertainment center project.
I want to clue the rest of you guys into something important; inset doors and drawers are technically very challenging to get right. There is no margin for error and everything shows. Buy fully adjustable hardware and charge more for labor or you will lose your shirt. The simple looks are deceptive.
The final photo shows the curved work in progress.
