Furuset reading houses

I’ve been helping out Ben Adams on the production of some reading houses for the Furuset library. I first 3d modeled everything and then turned all the parts into 2d curves for cnc machining. It turned out to be more complex then it seems, with lots of hidden joinery and roof angles to work with. We engraved some Norwegian style roof patterns and made chimneys to go on top. Also, we made the panels that are to be upholstered with a 2 mm pocket in the back, for hiding the staples.

Ben assembled and finished all the parts afterwards making sure the houses are ultra strong and get some nice details that finish it off.
