  • eeehh…. I wonder how well it will balance, that balance point on the top as it’s fully extended. It could get tricky depending on the base weight. Maybe if it was object specific? Or if there were some images included with it actually working?
    And whats the detail on the front about, the spline mitre gaps on the drawer fronts… looks funky.

  • Beautiful. The repetition of the “slats” is elegant.
    Balancing the contents when set asymmetrical will be fun.
