Thank you for your comment! I did consider a few other options: texturing the dowels with a die grinder or a chisel, using twigs instead, etc etc, but all things considered I was too intimidated by those options because I was concerned with craft issues. The overall form is a rectangle for a similar reason, but also just because it made the most sense within the context of my parent's living room. Nothing in there is too intense and I didn't want the whole room to be about the table they didn't even pick.iab wrote:I for one like it. I especially like the illusion of the dowels lifting the bottom off the ground (I assume it is an illusion).
Did you consider tapering the dowels to make them more organic? How about something other than a rectangle for the top and bottom? I ask because you have nice movement and the strict geometric shapes contradict that movement.
Thank you Michael! And I will.yo wrote:Very nice. You should post more of the pics in the form. You will get more responses.
I like the combination of whimsy with pragmatism. It is a fun concept but also efficiently made. Also, your jigs are clever.
A CAD program could easily determine where receiving holes would be on the top surface. A forstner bit would allow drilling without drilling through.yo wrote:There could be a designed solution there to the assembly. mmm, flush cut to the top....
