Love the contrast you built into the sides like that by resisting the classic wood panel treatment.
This is a nice project but I don't care for the builders use of the photoshop type program to present it. It's overkill. I have no doubt the piece stands on its own without computer alteration. The piece itself have interesting lines and curves. Very nice.
Very Nice and very creative. Will do what it required of it to do and with a touch of modern thrown in. Would have and would build. Still looks like allot of work though. If you are trying to win then you got my vote over the other one, which to me is useless and takes up more room than it produces.
