  3. While teaching I would make samples of joinery I thought up to be a reference set to show my students. Many complex joint solutions never found a customer, although they were usually inspired by a challenging past project done by students. This is a tale of one sample and one student who appreciated seeing the sample. Summer shop classes often requested my help for CNC work that was beyond the capability or the instructor. One such day I was in the shop to help one student when I was asked by another (Abby D.) if I could show her how make a form for S shaped laminations. I asked to see her design drawings to get a better idea of what she needed. Her intent was to stack three S-shaped laminated curved to make a 3-legged end table. As my personal design process strives for simplicity I could see how a sample joint I made could greatly simplify her project. Simple curves rather than stacked S shapes joined in the center the formwork was simpler and the result almost identical to her design drawings. A single bolt through the center holds all 6 curve sections together. The cables at the top lock the geometry. I cut the joint end by clamping each curve over the end of the CNC. The sample I showed her and the final project:
  4. I've just delivered this book stand to my college library rare book room. It now sits in the front large window of that room where it can be seen from the general library space. I was asked by the chief librarian to design something original and representative of the creative design environment our college is. These photos are of it in the finish room of our fabrication lab where I teach different sections of woodworking and furniture design to students in Interior Architecture and Industrial Design. CNC created aspects of this piece include the VCarved quotes cut into the two stretchers, the soft curve on the front of the dark front ledge, and all joinery including sliding tapered dovetails to slide the side support of the back shelf into, bowtie tenon rows between stretchers and feet stretchers and posts, and also between feet and posts. You can see a 4-tenon stacks of thru tenons bowtie shaped piercing the top. The thumbnail curve on the top edge of the feet was also done using the moulding toolpath in Aspire.
