A credenza That I made for my wife for her birthday. Oh, and six shelves… If you look closely, the breaks between the shelves are staggered. This took more layout and attention to detail than you would believe! All of the shelf brackets are welded to the shelves, and had to be dead-on to hit studs. I chose to put the shelf brackets on top to act as bookends, and when books are actually in place, the shelf brackets disappear. This causes the viewer to see the lateral shelves as floating pieces of 10 gauge (1/8”) platforms with no obvious retainers.

The credenza is 3/4” square tubing, skinned with 14 gauge HRS, and the doors are 1/4” birch veneer plywood. I had to make custom bypass door tracks from scratch to accommodate my design. I plasma cut the counter top out of 10 gauge HRS, and finished it with beeswax. If you look close, you can see the cord grommet that I incorporated.

Hope you like it!

PS… I know my photos suck, but you get the idea!

This is a little night stand lamp I made for my wife for Christmas. It consists of two pieces of .125” aluminum scrap, four rubber grommets and a lamp cord. No welding, all hand bent…

I made a quick coat/pants rack for my closet… A few mess ups in the cutting, but otherwise hard as H@!!…

These are terrible photos of the first two prototypes in my “Constructus” series of desk lamps. They are designed to be constructed to the shape and configuration you need or want. All parts are modular and can be expanded to your desired form. Here’s the kicker, 90% of the parts are recycled, the rest are energy efficient electronics.

So I find an old sketch book, and start going through it… What did I find? Some old pieces I had been working on to throw up in my shop. This was just a set, I actually have about ten pages of ideas that never went up. It’s pretty awesome to find this kind of stuff several years after the fact!
