unbelievable... again

The tree got some more play on another great blog.  I'm glad people out there find it interesting, hopefully it gave some people some ideas or ambition to try something like this themselves.

I really don't know what to say.   Made it again to Apartment Therapy!  I am truly blessed that people are actually interested in the stuff I do. Follow the link below!  This was posted on my other blog since I felt it was a little more attached to the house. Jump over there to check it out.

Sorry to all that may have been checking this blog looking for more, I have not posted any new content.  I am super excited that the sofa has received a lot of traffic on some great blogs, Plastolux (one of my top favorites) where it all started, some other great blogs, and then on Apartment Therapy, unbelievable!  I've been busy lately with a really important situation in my life and of course my larger project.  As time permits and I get some of my already completed smaller projects back out and set up I will post some assembly pictures and commentary.  Until then if you want some material check out to see what I'm busy with at the moment.  Thanks for everyone's comments, support, and critique. I appreciate all views of my stuff.  It will make my future projects even better!

more sofa

Here are some more pics of the sofa. I'll get some disassembled photos when I get a chance. The ability for it to breakdown in pieces makes it a little easier to move. Its still a bit heavy, the design could use some tweaking to make it a little more lightweight.  I wanted to make sure it would last quite awhile. Kind of like that coffee table. The upholstery is from Knoll and does have recycled content, and the mdf is of course nothing but sawdust, so I was trying to keep 'green' in mind as best I could at the time. I did detailed drawings that even laid out all the cuts to reduce the material and waste. That worked out very well.  The seat straps are elastic. The frame is hardwood. I got all the foam precut, and then had an upholstery place glue it down and finish the upholstery. Turned out pretty well and is comfortable considering the shape. Its very deep, deep sofas are more comfy and makes it good to kick your feet up and relax.  Sits four easily, or even two people laying side by side with the depth. Hope you enjoy, many people have seen it or sat on it, seems to be a crowd pleaser. If you can't find anything you like or can afford, make it yourself!

First Post

Well this is the first post on the small [E] modern site, this is where I will try and get up furniture, art, and other "smaller" things I design and/or make. Luckily I don't even have to come up with the content for this first post, well technically I did.  I designed and built this sofa, but luckily I shared it with an awesome blog that I regularly follow and it was posted.  Many thanks to Tyler over at Plastolux for getting it out there.  I will do a follow up post with some more pictures and commentary, but for now I just wanted to test this blog out and get something up.  Follow the link!
