.... the bottom of the drawer lol
Where is your competition being made? Are they using the quality of materials that you are? Is the inlay label anything close to the level you're doing it at? Are they even capable of offering a custom label?
The company is call Taybles. They use birch hardwood stainded. Not sure if it's plywood or solid wood. But if mine is cheaper and uses better materials, I should have an big advantage. That's what I want. I don't want to be close to the same. I want to stick out.
This has also started an entire line of coffee tables for me including NES style controller (no branding), giant battleship table, and giant cribbage board table.
I don't say this to a guy often, but I like your legs better
It also looks like they use a printed label whereas yours is all inlay. They might technically be more accurate, but yours is WAY more fancy woodworking.
Cool stuff Phil. Did you consider making the label something that the owner could custom write and change for the mood, company, party, etc? I homeschool and I got my 4'x8' dry erase board from Home Depot. They have a smaller board too.
How about one of these! But it actually works. I can do the electronics!
That would be epic!!!
Exactly. I wanted to be different. Not just copy. Mine I think would be more likely to be in someone's house that didn't just want a novelty item. Not dissing Taybles, just saying mine may be playing to a slightly different market.
My battleship fleet
How much is this worth....
these are renderings, right? You didn't already machine these...
Oh wow, does that ever bring back memories of my high school years! All the wealthy kids at De La Salle had those things and I can still hear the sound of them. They were quite the shizz back in the day...
If you are talking about the battleship pieces, yes they are renderings. But using fusion 360, they will look exactly like that.
Your renderings are surprisingly realistic, Kindly stay away from my video games, I have been told that I dont have a firm grip on reality as it is.
Last 2 pieces (side guides) just went on... time for sanding and stain.
I convinced the customer to go lighter on the stain. She was going for dark walnut and I convinced her to go provical (spelling?).
Starting to glue in the detail parts after 3 coats of wipe on poly.
Just needs the drawer installed and the legs made. I have the steel, I just need to bend it and powder coat it.
On to the legs!
