Spring 2016 | 2 1/2 Month Long Project | Completed in a group of 2
This shop project focused on designing a structure that was aesthetically pleasing, but could also support weight. We were given two wooden boxes that were to be placed 48 inches apart, and we had to design a constructible project that spanned them. No glue was used. Instead, joinery had to be created to hold the pieces together.
My project explored how placing pieces at alternating acute angles causes them to be stronger then if they were perpendicular. For example, we have the sticks on either side going in opposite directions and the planar pieces are held by the sticks at alternating 10 degree angles.
