Author Topic: 4 months of blood, sweat and tears, and now I'm finished.  (Read 2043 times)

After four long and difficult months, I've finished.  I had to design, document and manufacture a product of my choice, and I decided to make a guitar unit.

It's not just any guitar unit.  It is an ergonomic footstool, seat, music stand, as well as a storage unit, amplifier rack, guitar stand all incorporated into one unit.  This is something that I have never seen before as one unit, so you could call it an invention.

The materials I have used are: construction plywood, birch plywood, ash veneer, clear acrylic, and chrome-plated steel tubes.  

Day after tomorrow my folder is due, which documents the entire investigation, design, manufacture, testing and evaluative process.  When I'm done, I'll send some photos of my other ideas and sheets if people are interested.  It is basically a giant A2-sized folder with ~20 pages of work.

I will finish with mixed feelings.  While I am extremely glad this is over (I put this before everything...EVERYTHING), I will really miss the satisfaction of grunt work in a workshop with tools and materials.  I will definately have a workshop when I have my own house...and make random things.

If you are interested, I have put a few photos on http://www.flickr.com/photos/avinashvora .  Navigate around a few pages and you'll see it.

I have taken about 75 photos for this project alone, and will probably create a site about this life-changing experience, where I'll put all the best photos up.

Thanks to those who are interested.

Nice one. Was it Design and Technologie you made it in or somrthing like it? I gave up my design etc. class to follow languages, I just couldn't be bothered with all the drawings, especially when all we made was pretty useless.

Design and Technology, yeah.

I was going to drop it and choose Economics, but 15 minutes before the decision was due, I changed my mind.

The drawings are good, since I learned that I could do them.  I'll take some shots of my better sheets when I get my folder back.
