Neil's Furniture Pages
I like to build my own furniture. It allows me a freedom of design that's rarely found in the corporate world and it is very satisfying to me to know I made something myself. I'm completely self taught and everything I have made has been of my own design.
When I design and build furniture, I use the "design a bit, build a bit, iterate" methodology. I'll start off thinking the project through completely, sketching bits and pieces of it as required (I've now started using Visio to add some rigour to the process). Because I use an iterative design & build process, I focus on one sub-assembly at a time then re-evaluate how it fits with the overall design.
This is just the start of my Furniture page. Over the coming months I'll be adding details of more of the items I've built, so please feel free to check back for more (the Main Menu page has a list of recent page changes).
