A Furniture Build - The Brainstorm
|Cabinet Model in Cinema 4D|
So I want to build a new entertainment cabinet. What do I want out of it? I want it to hold the games, movies, and Wii, some remotes and other items. I also think using an old window frame for the door would be nice. Like this one I had done before. But how big? Well that's going to depend on the window, I know I want it to be narrow but taller, but I won't have the actual measurements until I find the window. I also want a couple drawers on the bottom. Since I didn't have the window I started with the drawers for measurement. I wanted them big enough to hold DVD cases sitting on edge and two deep. That gave me 6" tall and about 16" deep.
With those measurements I began building a 3D model of what I wanted in Cinema 4D. I played around with the look of it until I was happy. Nothing is to scale, it's all relative to what the size differences would look like.
I then exported the model to Photoshop and put the measurements in. I started with the shelves and worked from there. I just assumed the window was going to be 2' wide and 4' tall. After I find the window I want these measurements will change.

So there it is. Wife likes it, and I'll finally have something to build. Now all I need to do is go find that window tomorrow. Standby for updates. Feel free to ask any questions you may have - and look forward to the build.
