So as i am much more of a product architect / process consultant now in my role i have been scratching my design and build itch at home. I am in the process of building some bedside end tables and then some other bedroom pieces. While looking at some tools, i fell in love with this piece of “material” and have already begun the mental design process for what i could do with it.
With that said I thought a good thread to start could potentially be “what would you do?”
the challenge - to post a piece of raw material and then for the forum to explore what they would design with the said piece of raw material.
About a month ago a co-worker was milling parts from two color plastic (black & yellow). We independently had the same thought “Don’t clean the milling machine until we could take pictures of the shavings!”. The shavings made it look as if tiny bugs were swarming on the machine, or that it was being taken over by an odd moss.
I brought in my DLSR and tripod and took many pics.
Little slow on getting other personal projects done, which is fine as i am still not sure what to do with this piece of wood. So i thought i’d explore 3D cad models of what has been suggested here. Just to have some fun with quick concept visualization.
Solid works 3D model with image map and bump map applied.
I’m thinking the wood with the black cast iron and this style bulb would be nice. I may actually do a better rendering as i always love rendering lights. of course ill have to sketch out a quick table to get the overall feel of the size.
Breakfast bar thingy another time.
