From the general components, the details began to emerge dictating the form and aesthetics of the piece.

Formal component plans were used to envision scale, solidify details like corner radii and guide template files.

All chair components were shaped using acrylic laser cut templates on the router.

This table was largely designed around the apparent suspension of the table surface. Also, the proportional balance of the components, from both a flat view and profile view, was a major focus. The table is created from red oak and aluminum.

As a single day exercise, this vase was created out of scrap material from the table and additional test tubes.
