Summer '10 Furniture Design

Last summer I took a furniture design/build class which was an 8 week course. The first half of the course we looked at a lot of precedents (we even took a trip to check out the Shaker Village community in Kentucky) and we also did some smaller mock-ups of common connection techniques.

The second half of the course we designed, or choose a design for a furniture piece to build.

My design was a large bent-wood-lamination bench and here are some drawings and small models for it

This is a simple model looking at the connection between the seat portion and the frame
