Hi every one. A while back I posted some blown apart drawings of one of my dining table designs. Here is a link to the finished article in this months FWW magazine issue 219. 
http://www.urbanforestfurniture.com/DinningTable2WayDrawers%20%281%29.pdf
This is my first published illustration work and I really enjoyed the process, all modeling was done in TC and rendering in Thea.

As well for any woodworking enthusiasts there is another article I wrote in this months magazine showing my technique for half blind Dovetail construction.

Best,

Steve

Steve, this is superb. I love the design, and the handles are perfect for it. Do you think that over time it may sag slightly in the centre and the drawers tighten a little as a result? If so, I can't think of a solution with drawers passing throughout the width other than maybe a tension wire below may help if a suitable fixing position is available. I doubt it will be too profound, but a span of that length is bound to sag a little. I reiterate, fabulous design and beautifully presented.

Thanks Darrel and Alan! I first did this table for a client years ago and so far so good. When I conceived the table that very issue was my biggest concern. The way that it is constructed the stretchers and drawer dividers act like a truss keeping it all quite ridgid. I even find it surprising how stiff it is when glued up. That is the beauty of all of those tennons  ;D.

Steve, this is terrific!  You do excellent work in two worlds!  Hmmm, how many here have ever read a copy of Fine Woodworking <raises hand> ?  Great illustrations.

Steve, Craig, Crip and Tom,
Thanks for reading the article and for the compliments! I have to say that working with an art director for the illustrations for the magazine was a very educational experience. They had a certain look that they wanted for the magazine. First there was the way that the exploded parts would be arranged in space and in perspective to best clarify the construction and second they had a very specific artistic vision that I had to convey. It is definitely good to be pushed out of your comfort zone.
