An Inside Look of Design Inspirations, Creation & Stories From Klockit's 40 Year History
Not fired up to complete some of the projects on your To-Do list?
Over the years, there have been times where I was not enthusiastic about a proposed product design – at least not initially.
The woodworking plan project I am currently working on is one of those instances. I actually moved this plan project down on my To-Do list a couple of times, moving other design projects ahead of it.
All that has changed, however, as I have worked on what I am starting to see as maybe the most unique and versatile piece of furniture I have had the privilege to develop.
Without giving too much away, I can only sincerely advise our amazing Klockit woodworking customers to seriously consider purchasing and building this plan piece when it is released in early 2014.
Imagine: A three module, multifunctional, 360 degree rotating storage cabinet that stands just a few inches under 6 feet tall. This rotating storage cabinet will occupy less than 20” of floor space, but can be easily customized according to what the intended usage is and where in the home it is to be located.
The plan builder will have a variety of design options for how each side of the module is to be finished. Whether it’s a storage / activity unit in a child’s room, a storage-message-display piece in an entry way, or a space saver cabinet in a college dorm room, this piece is a great addition to any room.
All in all, I’m really excited about all potential variations and uses that this cabinet will allow. I can’t wait to complete all of the design drawings so I can build the model and unveil it! My best estimate is that the model will be done by mid to late January of 2014.
John spent the better part of the 28 years he was employed by Klockit, designing hundreds of clock and furniture kits and plans and has continued with product design since his retirement in 2008. John’s love of clocks, his passion for creating furniture for his own home as well as for family, and his great appreciation for the beautiful finished pieces Klockit customers make from our kits and plans inspire him to continue to create still more new clock and furniture designs.
