The bass clef legs on that bench seem really fragile where they contact the floor. I'd like to see a shot of the legs to see how the bass clef floating side dots were handled.

I dig the bench though.

I'll be damned. It's a book case, not a bench.

Cool! I like it better as a bookcase. A lot of the "cool because it's difficult to make" stuff in this thread is not to my taste, but I genuinely appreciate the look of that.

After I graduated with a degree in furniture design (would you like fries with that?) I was offered an informal critique with a FOAF who worked for Wendell Castle. Apart from being very helpful and insightful, he called attention to an aspect of my work that he said is pretty common especially with beginners and craft people, it is called "Woodiness."

It's marked by infatuation or even over use of different kinds of wood for the sake of different kinds of wood, sometimes gratuitously.

The music shelf, for example, is woody. From a design standpoint it makes more sense for the notes and bars to be the darker wood, like the ink on the page. As it is, it's mostly about the showing off figure of the maple.

Consider on the other hand, this piece by Ruhlmann, it's made with highly figured veneer, inlaid with ivory. Yet I wouldn't call it woody. The figure is used as part of the design, the ivory accentuates the shape of the figure of the rosewood, it doesn't shout "Yo bitches, I'm ivory!" All of the elements of the design work towards the same goal.

The music bookshelf is undoubtedly cool and very well made and, for me, illustrates the difference between craft and art. And this IS the crafty DIY thread.

Ruhlmann is a damn showoff.

I couldn't own that piece, because the elevated, spotlighted, turntable would take up too much room in my living room.

If I had a house, where it could dominate a room, then maybe. As it is, it would dominate my entire condo.

It would have to be opposite the front door, so the first thing visitors see is me in my white tux, petting my white cat, while chuckling evilly.
