Okay, I just barely finished this and haven't had a chance to actually test it in DJ yet but I was so excited that I HAD to share!

It makes a nice desk but it's versatile enough to use as a fancy dresser, bookshelf. cabinet or whatever.

I wasn't sure about the shadow effect and I kinda guestemated at the size using other objects as reference so let me know what you think and what could be improved.

All Zips Below

Medium Sized Ornate Desk (or whatever)


Medium Sized Dining Table


Small Chairs (slightly different from the ones in the zip)



Oh, and if anyone likes it go ahead and use it however you want to. If you want the PS file to fiddle with, just ask.

I'm thinking that the doors/drawers on the front need to come off, they don't look right without handles and I gave up trying to make those after about an hour.

A8C_Desk.zip
Dining_Table.zip
Dining_Chairs.zip

This is a FANTASIC cabinet!

Size is way to big. Dundjinni uses a size based on 200 pixels at 200 pixels per inch (or dpi) equals 5 feet.

So based on that, this cabinet is about 20 feet long. I usually make my objects about 25% larger than I think they should be because it is better to have to make something a little smaller, than to have to enlarge it a lot and lose resolution.

So I changed it to about 8.6 ft wide at 200 dpi. and I added some handles I have used to make treasure chests before.

We also have an unwritten convention that we tag our art and maps with 2 or 3 letters at the end of the file name that lets people know who made it. and if we make a significant modification then we add our tag after the original one.
So this might be Cabinet_RSS for your original and Cabinet_RSS_bg if I made a preset out of it ( actually, I like that Idea )

Thanks guys!

That looks excellent Bogie, somehow I had a feeling that you would be able to fix it!!!

The smaller size is definitely better and the handles make a huge difference. Ummm.... would you mind sending them my way so I can pop them onto some of the accessories I have planned?

The only thing I miss with the size change is the detail in the filigree inlays but it was worth it.

Do you think I should increase the bevel a bit?

I've added the smaller version, with the addition of Bogie's handles, to the original post.

The only real difference between it and Bogies mod is that because I shrank it from the original PSD file the filigree came out a bit crisper. It's also a tad bit bigger because I just dropped the size by 50% of the original.

Looking at it, the handles aren't nearly as good as I just did a quick copy and paste from Bogie's mod. I'll get it right eventually!

Also finished the table. The shadow is a bit lighter than the one on the cabinet but I've been up since 2:00AM!

Now onto the chairs...

Nope. If looks pretty good this way. And it already has a directional shadow on the bevel that isn't there in the top-down shadow. If you create a bigger bevel, the difference between the two shadows will be much more noticeable.

Nice work! Kepli is up because he is in Europe.

Here is the handle I used.

Ha ha, that makes sense! In my defense though, I didn't get much sleep.

Thanks Bogie.

Kelpi... I had a friend in England who stayed up until half past two most nights, which made it great for chatting the day away (for me anyway). I have another friend in Australia, which isn't so easy as that's about an 18 hour difference. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around the idea that it's early tomorrow morning over there!

Had I had any coffee in me at the time I probably would have realized that you must be somewhere in Europe. Then again you could just be a night owl.

Here's the chair, sort of. It's not finished yet and there's something terribly wrong with the back, and for the life of me I can't figure out how to fix it. Once I get that sorted out I can finish the arms.

The final version will have 5 different seat cushions plus the inlaid finish similar to what's on the back as well as the table and desk.

Can anyone help with the back?

Thanks Bogie, you are sweet.

I guess it looks alright in this smaller size. Maybe I'm just hard on myself, but honestly it's awful in it's bigger state. It doesn't seem to be the proper perspective or something.

Maybe I'll just post the whole set and move onto the next one.

Added chairs to original post

It looks pretty good to me but you might want to darken, a little, the lower two corners. The middle section of the backrest has darkness but the corners do not, hence they look like they are bending upward.

edit: quicky job of fixing, not perfect, just example:

After playing with the furniture in DJ I've made a few tweaks that make it more usable (in my opinion) and I finally finished (I hope) the dining chairs .

The original post has been updated with zip files for all the furniture so far.

The table and desk zips have three sized for each piece and the chairs come in two sizes. I don't know how practical this is but it certainly makes my job of resizing in DJ easier!
