J-Bench (February 7-22, 2011)
Dimensions: 66’’ x 37’’ x 16’‘
So I decided to take my “Wave Bench” and the “Tornado Floor Lamp” to the next level by adding a sharp curve on on the wave like a winding road. This took a lot planning with the measurements of the cuts. I have to admit some cuts I did were too thin that they ended up snapping the wood when I added brad nails. I was pushing the idea of on recycling the smaller pieces of wood in a different way.
I had to make my own guide for my table saw that I would end up with 85degree angle cults on my wood. Some small came flying that I wore a chest plate. I spent a lot of time sanding each piece to the right size. I would say this a prototype of what I else I could do with small pieces of old wood. Using the techniques I learned in this furniture, I believe I can actually make all the letters of the alphabet… But would probably be suicide. hehe.
It sits nicely by the way and it is very strong. I chose the letter “J” because of my last name Jose. =)
