I'm not sure how much mass appeal it would have but I'm loving the use of the HD Foam!

theha: Really diggin' the angular asymmetrical feet forms you have going. How much weight can the foam take without deforming? Hold a TV and all the components fine?

My thoughts as well, and very accurately cut ... hot wire? Is there a hard "leg" embedded inside the foam to support it? Also actually like the unfinished edge of the plywood. Really fresh concept. Looks inviting too, have you done a test to see if it will bear the load of an unexpected "sit" .

but probably not suited to people with pets

weight wise, yes it supports a tv easily but does require a piece of glass top for plasma/LCD. I made the unit for my own use and I have my TV wall mounted but I am currently working on a second protype.
I can sit on the unit, the foam compresses slightly but it wont damage anything.

All the foam was cut with CNC and a table lighting knife as this is a sponge foam not polystyrene, this gives very sharp finish.
I like the use of unfinised plywood although originally I wanted to only use foam but i found it a bit much on the eye.
Also there is no added structural support the plywood keeps it riggid and the foam is firm enough to take weight

My partner wants a dog so I am savering what I have for now

Thanks for looking
Peace out Max

Nice design. I think it would be interesting to explore in different materials, too. Black acrylic, rather than plywood, with the foam would look good, too. The shiny lines would add a nice contrast to the matte appearance of the foam. Still very nice.

Here are some stools that I make. Made of bent solid steel bar bases powder coated and Tasmania Oak tops finished in a satin coat.
Heavily influenced by the industrial stools I used to find at garage sales I just love the minimal material usage.

I designed this laptop table a couple of years ago, if only I could afford to make the mould!

So lately I have been working on this piece for my home.
She is a monster of a sideboard 2700mm long.
It's a design I have been sitting on for a while and only summed up the courage to make it fairly recently.
All hand made of Tasmanian Oak with American Walnut details. I'm really happy with the result!
I've just completed a smaller 1800mm version for someone as well.

Thanks again
Max

Thats a nice piece! Normally Im not a fan of oak, but that looks very nice. What is the finish on it? oil/wax? I really like the fit/finish of the foot as well. I imagine working with that large of a top sheet added some challenges. Did you consider miter-folds rather than butt joints?

Thanks guys

The finish is a satin poly.
The sizing did make it difficult but it ment I had to get a hand when putting it together.
Mitre joints were considered but I'm not entirely sure why I chose butt joints I think because I made the top slightly thicker
Than the sides

Thanks again
Max
