April 7- 30 modern furniture design
Please take a look at 3 web sites:
- One designer of your choice
As furniture makers we are no longer limited to thinking in 90 degree angles. So your assignment is to:
Ideation sketches -6 small drawings showing what you want to build
Choose one of your designs draw it out using rough measurements.
Use metric measurements for this. Then is not so hard to get right.
In 1/5 scale build your design using any kind of stiff paper stock (card board, the material in a cereal box,) it doesn’t really matter as long as the material will supports itself. Construct using tape, hot glue to put parts together.
For example if I have a measurement of 100mm then at 1/5 scale the card part will measure 20mm.
Basically whatever the life measurement is ….divide by 5 and you have 1/5 scale
Take picture of your designs, sketches, and model and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org

Mays’ class work Manufacturing Added value
The basic principle of any design project is asking a series of questions. What do I want to make? How will it look? What materials will I use? What will it cost to make? Once we have those basic questions answered then we can start building on the furniture design principles, and as designers, how do we create added value to what we make?
Added value means what can we do to make our piece unique and reflect our sense of aesthetics. One of ways open to us is to use technology to help us do this. This year the school purchased a good Cad-Cam (Computer Aided Drafting–Computer Aided Manufacturing) program called V-Carve Pro. It is an easy program to use. It just requires some practice.
To this end here is what you are to do.
Download the trial version V carve pro
Look at 3 getting started videos
- Avalon Nameplate
- Bulls Head
- Open Sign
The next set of videos are about drawing using V Carve
- Introduction to Drawing
- Image to Vector Logo
- Profile Toolpath Guide
- Pocket Toolpath Guide
After watching the videos please play in the program and get comfortable with it.
There will be a small quiz asking some questions about how to use the V carve program. You will be able to do the quiz in Edmodo after May 17.
As always, I will be available to answer any questions you might have through email or messenger in edmodo
May class work Metal work
One of the most important skills in metal work to develop is the ability to join metals together. There are various ways to do this. This unit will focus on those ways.
Identify the ways to join metals. Use the “net” to help.
When looking at welding, watch the videos that focus on safety first, then on how to do it. Welding requires four things to be correct for it to be a good weld.
There will be a small quiz that will focus on the methods, safety requirements, and welding theory. You will be able to do the quiz any time after May 17.
