Bedside Table/Shelf

I design this table with leather top and storage unit.
_BAI3959A single unit on each own can be a small bed table or desk top stand._BAI3965It can also be used vertically as a magazine rack._BAI3961Or use in this direction with possibility to hold a table top._BAI3962Process

I start with by making a 1:3 scale model.

Because I designed the angle to be bent at 135 degree so the two legs can meet at a right angle, therefore made the slots easier to cut. _BAI3690I do like the shape a lot but I didn’t think the angle is suitable. They are too spread out. _BAI3685In use:_BAI3691_BAI3692After reviewing the model and making some revision, I went on making the full size table.

So it left the other two slots for Japanese saw.Photo Dec 05, 9 12 51 AMLots of sanding afterward.Photo Dec 09, 8 43 54 PMI decided to sand down the top and put a piece of leather on top so the surface its non-slippery, wipe clean, heat resistance and nice to write on/eat on._BAI3966Finished!
