Deformities



I've had the roughed out headboard for Doug's bed in the garage for a couple years now. It's a leftover fragment of the bed I completed back then. It's time to give him a decent bed. I am working out the proportions of the headboard to canopy and doing some preliminary nightstand sketches. I'm having a lot of trouble with the nightstands. I don't want it to look like a box yet to be practical it has to provide at least some storage. And since I avoid rectilinear shapes a box becomes my enemy. I like the wood to take on the appearance of folded paper, like origami, although with more asymmetry. So I have to deform it.
