A break from the digital life — Bent Wood Bicycle Tray Project

By Sunday, November 30, 2014 No tags 1

As a side project, I have been de­sign­ing and build­ing these bent wood bi­cy­cle trays. Need­less to say, I’ve spent a lot of time in the wood shop work­ing with a va­ri­ety of wood work­ing tools. It has been a while since I have used a band­saw and ta­ble router. It feels so sat­is­fy­ing to be mak­ing some­thing tan­gi­ble with my hands. Like most de­sign­ers, I spend a lot of time in front of my lap­top or read­ing and talk­ing about design.

See­ing a project tran­si­tion from a rough idea to sketch to de­sign and fi­nally to a phys­i­cal form all un­der my guid­ance is an in­cred­i­ble feel­ing that I feel that all de­sign­ers should feel. It was one of the rea­sons why I have pushed my­self to learn a va­ri­ety of skills out­side of design.

Spe­cial thanks to Jon Mar­tin, and Leah Mar­tin for their as­sis­tance and sup­port through this process.
