wood workings

So our latest assignment in studio dealt with the wood shop. Learning that we would already be dealing with heavy machinery pretty much put me straight into stress mode. We were given a 2x4 in which we were to create a system. It had to be cut at least five times, and we had to use every piece of wood that was given to us. I struggled so much with this project, but ended up having a piece I was happy with. My system is a box shape, but with a contrast between parallel and diagonal lines. Most boxes contain all parallel and perpendicular lines but I did not want mine to be like most boxes. So reading from right to left, the lines are parallel and as it progresses, the lines start to become more diagonal.
