Fabrication of side table inspired by Gunlocke's Midcentury Modern chair.
Inspired by Gunlocke's Midcentury chair, I tried to study the design language of the chair with how it balanced the rigid geometric silhouette with the energetic angles. I took to 3D sketches in foam and mocked up minor alterations.
An extensive order of operations was created to create the profiles and magazine rack separately, and then a glue up assembly using joinery to hold the parts in place. I also created a jig to help align the biscuit joiner to the angled magazine rack and profiles.
Due to the angled placement of the magazine rack, and account for woodgrain movement, the design was adjusted, to add a bar underneath with counterbores to hide the added screws. This was also prevalent in Gunlocke designs to conceal any fastening. A quick sit-test was conducted for safe measure.
