I was asked to make a storage bench, with a rough outline of dimensions and function. Basically, it had to store clothes, be a decent height to sit on and fit into the allowable space.
So, off I went and started sketching up some rough ideas.
Bench with open shelves:
Bench with drawers:
A low table with storage shelf
A low table with drawers.
A chest with a hinged lid
This last one was the type of bench chosen. However, I was then asked to make it match a sink vanity that would be in the bathroom.
I found that the sink vanity was for sale at the local home center so I went and took a photo of it:
Also, I found a photo on the internets of the same cabinet. I imported this into a CAD program I had and found the relative dimensions of the frame rails on the doors and the baseboard etc.
Working from this, I started modeling in Sketchup and came up with this model, which I then worked off.
