For Music and Plants

Independent Work | Summer 2015

A credenza to hold a record player, vinyl collection and a plant.
Black walnut, steel, and brass fasteners.

Wood upper constructed with biscuit joints. Steel legs MIG welded and joined to wood upper with brass screws. Legs sit inset in wood for a flush appearance. The legs were designed to be easily removed during transport and to aethetically sit flush in the wood. The proportions were designed to store vinyl collection on lower shelf, with legs spaced to support a stereo in center. Upper shelf designed as one long span to create a light aethetic, with enough support at ends to support a turntable, digital speakers, and a plant. 

This piece was created independently following an introductory course in MIG welding at Makerhaus in Seattle, a DIY workspace where I volunteered as a Working Member, exchanging hours of work for access to classes and time in the company’s wood and metal shops.
