The assignment in my Rethinking Furniture class was to make a functional piece of furniture. There were no specific requirements and I decided to build a desk. I used my conceptual sketches to work out proportions and a final plan to construct the piece. I am pleased with the shape of the legs and being able to stick to my original design during fabrication. I used a chop saw, a MIG welder, a pneumatic grinder, a drill, the table saw and a lathe to complete the construction of my desk.
