Z - Table
Site Location: UIUC Fabrication Workshop
The seminar is for experiencing the characteristic of wooden structure, grain, joinery and transfer these techniques into the smaller scale of architectural representation: furniture. The idea of this end table is for experimenting the cantilever of the wooden structure, resulting the Z-shape legs for stabling. In order to keep the unique grain on the top, the slab was cut at the half and filliped to retain the rectangular edges. In addition, the river-like epoxy resin at the middle gap was pour not only for the light penetration, but also for the appearance of the rough edge of wooden slab.
Material selection: walnut slab
Cut and flip it to preserve the grain pattern
Filled the gap with clear epoxy resin
