I intended to design and construct an elegant side table with a natural live edge top.
The project drawer front is curved and compliments the curves from the table top edge. This was challenging to achieve and resulted from experimenting with a range of timber bending techniques. The chosen method was steam bending layers backwood veneers and clamping them around a pre-made timber form and gluing the layers together.
A combination of timber joints were used including the dovetail, rebate and domino joints.
The project showcases the beautiful Australian Blackwood timber sourced from Northern NSW and Tasmania.
