Oh wow - this is amazing!

Wood grain direction on the worktop and shelves wrong - needs to be rotated 90 degrees [wink]

Also - separate items that rest on others by 1mm to simulate contact shadows. That applies to furniture on the floor as well as items on worktops, shelves etc. It will improve your images even more!

I will disagree with that observation Bigstick maybe it statement of design that direction of the grain on the worktop (yeah it's more expensive, yeah it's more difficult) but if it's a decision of personal design [rolleyes]?

 

very nice week series!

The problem with the grain in that direction is strength.

It's fine when the width isn't too long, but when you have a long section of timber cut against the grain, there is a definite risk of splitting and/or breaking, particularly when the timber isn't that thick.

Apart from that, you have the production process. It takes time and money to bond sections of timber together for worktops. You don't normally have solid timber. If you are going to bond strips together, it makes far more sense (and it's more economical) to bond the long side.

I guess technically if you had a counter top like this, lets say the customer wanted it, you'd have to join 3" slabs of wood together, which would only be as wide as the tree they were cut from.  Say 12-16".  So you could do it no problem, and the counter top would be structurally strong, especially if attached to the top of a cabinet.  

On a different note, the whicker basket is what popped out at me.  I think it's fabulous.  The way that window drapes light over it. 

Question, do you base these renders off photographs?  Or are these entirely conceptual spaces?
