{"432":{"title":"Fold Four Office Furniture","content":"

Design: Vincent Whitehurst, Architect PA
\nCarpentry: Roy Brooks<\/p>\n

Furniture designed for graphic designer and art director Roy Brooks and his firm Fold Four for his new office based in Milwaukee. He wanted a design that had simple lines, was easy to build with the available tools in his shop, and would provide the required storage and work areas needed. He expressed interest in using slot joints so we used large ones to create the simple lines on the desks, and dado slots were used to connect the shelves.<\/p>\n","subhead":"Milwaukee, WI","photos":{"443":{"url":"http:\/\/www.vincentwhitehurst.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2013\/06\/IMG_1058-621x415.jpg","width":621,"height":415,"caption":"Desk and shelves made from Amercian birch plywood and maple hardwood."},"444":{"url":"http:\/\/www.vincentwhitehurst.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2013\/06\/IMG_0959_2-311x415.jpg","width":311,"height":415,"caption":"Shelves mad of American birch plywood and maple hardwood supports."},"442":{"url":"http:\/\/www.vincentwhitehurst.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2013\/06\/IMG_0968_2-621x415.jpg","width":621,"height":415,"caption":"Shelf connection detail"},"446":{"url":"http:\/\/www.vincentwhitehurst.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2013\/06\/3-28-F4-layout-622x415.jpg","width":622,"height":415,"caption":"Design sketch of furrniture"}}},"166":{"title":"The Unit","content":"","subhead":"reclaimed pine, decommissioned road sign","photos":{"167":{"url":"http:\/\/www.vincentwhitehurst.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2013\/01\/furn_unit.jpg","width":400,"height":278,"caption":"A large strorage unit built for toys."}}},"288":{"title":"Bi-fold Chair","content":"
