Along with form language and craft practice, this project served to emulate the manufacturing process as well. We drew up technical drawings for our design and gave them to a randomly selected classmate to fabricate, and any mistake we made on those technical drawings would be on our stool.
​​​​​​​Materials: poplar, walnut
Tools: joiner, planar, table saw, band saw, drill press, router
