Nice to see you back at it Andy!
Watch that lower right hand corner on the table sketch. Either the corner is off or the shadow is off.
I know it is just a sketch, but did you have any thoughts on how you would make that table? If it was bent I think the radii would be bigger and it would likely be split in 3 parts (they could be essentially modular units). You wouldn't want to hog it out of lumber. It would be a crazy expensive amount of wood and then a crazy amount of machine time to waste all that raw material. If you made it out of metal it could be break formed easily.
Thanks Yo! It feels good to be sketching again.
Do you mean that the shadow goes too far past the table corner to the right?
I agree that actual timber isn’t efficient. I was originally thinking of bent sheet and then hydro dipped with the timber texture. The only downside of bending heavy gauge metals with brake forming is the flaring you get on the edges of the radii as the material contracts and stretches.
I also considered an aluminium extrusion, but I don’t know of anywhere that could make or control the warpage on something this large. It could be broken down into side/mid parts that snap together but would change the timber pattern flowing smoothly after coating. I’m sure somewhere in China has the ability to control it!
