Project Ideas

This is an ongoing idea and experiment to build a night stand. The idea is to reverse the roles of concrete and glass. The rendering has glass panel legs intersecting concrete slabs. To challenge the impossible I would like the top slab to be rigidly supported by one panel. A slab of concrete (45 lbs) cantilever from a piece of tempered glass is a lot of forces. I have done a number of experiments and achieved a cantilevered concrete slab. Thou, too much flex remains in the system, primarily the connection point.
The challenge remains designing a connection between the glass and concrete that is rigid enough.
Otherwise using two glass panel legs at the full height will probably work spectacularly. Any combination of slabs and glass could be assembled to suit a clients need, like a bookshelf.
