Frame Work

Wooden Frame

The senior thesis piece is now underway. I’ve begun by constructing a wooden frame, laying out the pieces on plywood board. The design is sketched out and “L” brackets have been placed and fastened so that I can easily bend and clamp the wood into place. I’ve decided that steaming the wood will be the easiest way to bend it and have it hold its shape. Some time this week I hope to build a steam box that I can have set up in my studio. This will probably be made out of a piece of PVC pipe since the pieces of wood are 2” x ½” x 6’.
