Long distance project
« on: May 01, 2021, 05:39 PM »
This is very different from the usual project in that it was designed from the beginning to be stained/finished and assembled by homeowners with no woodworking skills and packed to ship.
The base is a piece that they already had. The upper shroud was constructed with maple ply using a combination of 6mm Dominos and Lamello Zeta P2 hardware. The back is probably the most complex part because of the necessity of break-down for shipping.
The vertical partitions and sides are intended to be permanent, so they are assembled with glued Dominos and Tenso fasteners. This eliminated the need for clamps that the average person wouldn't have.
The upper part of the back, above the shelf, is in two pieces. This is because of grain direction/width.
They are just overlapping rabbets and screws. The lower back is three pieces, joined with Dominos and Clamex connectors. The hex key holes face toward the back, making it easier to assemble, again without clamps. This was also because of shipping size parts.
This whole thing was then packed into two separate boxes and shipped over 1500 miles via Fedex.
They obviously got it finished and assembled just fine.
Not the greatest picture because it is dead-on from the front, you can't see the sides.
