End Table Prototype: Rough Assembly

A few weeks ago, I  posted  some CAD drawings of an end-table prototype, based on the Perimeter coffee table. But I hesitated to start constructing the first physical copy. The design felt a little too… basic. Too symmetrical. Too TIDY. So I grabbed my sketchbook and brainstormed some more imaginative iterations.

After a few pages of designs ranging from the wild to the wildly impractical, I settled on a two-legged, cantilevered design. I wanted to contrast the stark minimalism of a floating tabletop with the heavy-duty functionality of its materials. While it’s less stable than a four-legged design (lean on the corner of the wood, and you’re both going down) end tables aren’t usually subjected to the same weights and stresses as desks or coffee tables. Plus, I’m a hypocrite – always against trading function for form, until I like the way it looks.
