The assignment was to fabricate something using primarily two different materials. Let’s say the project is roughly 40% one material, 40% the other. The materials cannot be acrylic or plywood (unless you are gluing up your own plywood). The work should be held together using fasteners of your choosing.
This week I chose to use metal and wood veneer and to practice using the machines in the shop. I used an old wooden frame I had as well as veneer with sticky back and the aluminum pieces Ben said we could use.
I measured the original wooden frame and marked the metal before using the sew:
Then I sanded the metal by hand
Then I marked the point for drilling the holes to hold up the frame with “L” brackets with screws
I cut a piece of cardboard to fit in side the frame
I painted the veneer with wood finish wax to create some shade to play with
I realized that the frame looked nicer when the frame was placed inside out
This is the final result, now I’ll have something to hang on my wall at home 🙂
