I design this table with leather top and storage unit.
A single unit on each own can be a small bed table or desk top stand.It can also be used vertically as a magazine rack.Or use in this direction with possibility to hold a table top.Process
I start with by making a 1:3 scale model.
I cut the slots using band saw. 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. I do like the shape a lot but I didn’t think the angle is suitable. They are too spread out. In use:After reviewing the model and making some revision, I went on making the full size table.
Cutting 8 layers of 1/8 plywood on table saw.CNC the jig out of the blue foam for bent lamination in the vacuum forming jig.The little one is for clamping later.The new angle is 70 degree. I left each form in the vacuum bag for exact 5 hours so the they came out almost the same angles.Trimming the edges off on table saw using the jig I made.Since the table saw blade could only bend less than 90 degree, I could only cut two slots. So it left the other two slots for Japanese saw.Lots of sanding afterward.I 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.Finished!
