Hubbub has gone into hibernation.

New tables

Action stations

I’m writing this from behind a new desk. These were designed by my brother Ties. He’d done a pair of desks for BUROPONY before and when I saw his new design for a meeting table I asked him to also make a smaller version that could be used as a desk.

Early model

The design is reminiscent of those wooden dinosaur skeletons. All the parts are milled from birch wood plates and slide into place without the need for glue, nails or screws.

Plans

We did have to sand them down and lacquer them, though. That was a bit more work than I had expected… (Good thing I had help from my brother and sister.)

There was a bit of space left on some of the plates, so we also made monitor stands that can hold a stack of A4 sized paper.

I think they look really neat and I can tell you they’re a pleasure to work from. I love the natural unfinished look, and the feel of the wood grain. Here’s a few more shots.
