At the beginning of the year when I was brainstorming capstone ideas, I made a goal to learn more about carpentry. In order to accomplish this goal, I decided to build furniture for students at SLA. I chose two students to build furniture for, one of the students wanted me to build them a footrest and the other one wanted me to build a bookshelf. In order for them to be involved in the process and give them something they actually will like, I asked them about the specific features they want for their items. I essentially treated them like clients and had meetings with them, where we discussed different things pertaining to the design until they tested the final products. The final products were a 17”x10”x6” footrest that was filled with Nu-foam and a 47”x22” bookshelf that they are going to pick up once they are ready to. From building the furniture I can say that I accomplished my goal as I learned a lot more about carpentry. I learned how to biscuit joint two pieces of wood together, how to upholster a cushion and a multitude of other things. I overall had a good time creating the furniture for my capstone.
