I finished this piece in the September holidays last year. It solves a number of small around the desk storage issues and lifts things out of reach of infants. Looks cool too. It is holding up well for a foam core prototype held together with pins and glue. Every space in it is now in use. I would like to have it cut from perspex, timber or metal.

This was a fun piece to build, I’d like to make more pieces in a similar style.
