Corner to corner awesomeness!


What is it with some people and throw pillows?  🙄
Looks awesome!  Thanks for sharing the building process in your blog.  
Another first class piece from Bently! It's always a pleasure to see your work.
Wow Bent....that is impressive!  Thanks for posting!

Very impressive.  Well done both design and build.

I'm sure it's ho-hum to most, but, first time I've encountered this H/W,

what are their unique function?

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Super nice, excellent workmanship.

Top notch work, as usual.

Duck look at that 3rd picture again. 

Beautiful work, as per usual. Somebody got 2 different rooms for one $$$$ Is there some kind of office at the other end of it?

Duck look at that 3rd picture again. 

Are those designed for drawer bottom re-inforcement?... heavy contents.  I would have though that promoting 3ply to 5 might have done the trick... I've just never seen them b4.

Wow! Awesome!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Thanks for the nice comments everybody.  It's appreciated. This unit was a lot of work.

Duck, The slides are typical Movento undermount drawer guides made by Blum. 
They have a mechanism that snaps onto them  "called tip on" that make them push to open along with the soft close feature. 
The small front rod is a synchronization rod that lets both side actuate at the same time so that the latches don't get out of sync with each other. 

There is also a stabilization kit that goes on the back that has a track and gear with a rod that ties them to each other. This keeps both sides tracking the same so that the wide drawer stays straight going in and out.Here is a closer pic of the hardware,  (it's all I got of it). 

Drawers have 1/2" bottoms glued in on all sides,  they're stout enough to hold whatever they put in them.

Thanks again everybody

Bent,

Those pillows are awesome!

The cabinet work is incredible!

Beautiful piece of furniture!
Very nice.
I see two brass knobs just above the drawers. Are they for a pull out shelf? I have used slide out shelves on bedside night stands. They are quiet useful for coffee, books, etc, especially if someone is confined to the bed for illness or injury.
Thank You Les,
Yes, the inside (near bed) are pull outs, the outsides are fixed.

So, after doing that on Monday, what did you make on Tuesday?😉  Amazing work!
