For my design, I will need to fabricate both a wood structure for my hourglass and a light installation to go inside. As of now, I am not settled on the details of my light installation so I will focus on fabricating the wood base. Taking inspiration from traditional hourglass forms, I want the wood base to have an interesting aesthetic. In addition to a top and bottom base plate, the structure will also need three vertical wood columns as is customary for hourglasses. For these columns, my options are either to buy a pre-ornated dowel or lathe some ornamentation into the dowel myself. As for the wood bases, I plan on using a CNC machine to make the proper cuts from a larger piece of wood. Since my idea is still in the works at this point, I do not have a specific timeline in place. Rather, I am waiting until I find a glass piece for the hourglass. At this point, I will have a better idea on my fabrication process.
