||I designed a modular bench. Each module can act as a stand-alone stool, but each piece can be interlocked to create a bench. This allowed for efficient use of floor space for mass seating and the flexibility for users to decide how much seating they needed by either adding or subtracting stool modules.
I first approached this project by creating two stools through manual woodworking techniques utilizing mechanical band saws, table saws, and sanders to create my stools.
I then took my design and created CAD drawings that were then inputted into a 6-axis CNC router.
The manual process took significantly more effort to produce. It took me about a month to produce 2 stools by hand, where it took me only a day to produce the one CNC-routed stool.
