I am not a designer, artist, or craftsman. I am a hack with tools.
I've made a few pieces with plans that those around me have been pretty
impressed with, but it's all been straight line furniture. Tables,
stands, bookcases, and the like.
My daughter has a store bought dresser that didn't even last 3 years.
I've set myself up to make a replacement... I've showed her all the
plans that I could find - but nothing is to suit her. She's popped
through some online pictures and found one she likes. I've posted the
picture to abpw as "Daughter's Dresser."
Guess I'm looking for a little guidance on how to make it happen. I've
many, many books on design and layout.
I'll have to avoid the fancy turnings and carvings, just straight line
stuff... Would a decent approach be find a plan that is similar and
modify? Or should I try and actually develop a plan section by section?
I don't have access to CAD - not that it matters, but I have Visio!
Just not sure how to tackle it I guess... nor how to even pose the
question I need answered.
