Wow Jay, the way the picture looks you are about 4 foot tall. Michael said you're no Hobbit (which I'm a huge fan by he way) so it's deceptive how big they look.
You really did a great job of making these look elegant and not too bulky. They are really a nice looking design and I look forward to seeing a pair finished. Still trying to figure out how to swing a pair, you told me the best idea awhile back but that might be hard to convince a certain other person in the house.
In person they look more slender... once we had one glued up, Don and I were commenting on how the extrta height makes the wings seem so much narrower. Proportions can really change the appearence
The original NX-Ottica prototype didn't have the 3 deree tilt, that was Danny's idea. After that, it was a matter of playing with the lines and getting it all to look " right'n That open side wing went through numerous phases.
Yes, that pic is somewhat deceiving, it's on a bit of angle so the cabinet is actually more in the foreground than I. That being said, after all the health issues and a couple years in wheelchair,I actually shrunk 6' and am now 5'..... I haven't had my height measured for a while, maybe I am still shrinking
I've heard that certain vacation destinations can sometimes be convincing to "other peple"
