I decided to scrap the idea of making a skateboard rack due to my lack of access to woodworking tools. Instead, I’m creating a steampunk chest/trunk with cardboard and duct tape. This is far more feasible and allows me to express my artistic talents better.
My design process included ideation, sketching, gathering materials, preparation of the materials, then execution.
This is a picture of cardboard and tape being used to make cardboard more stiff. This part in particular will be the top part of the chest.
I’m also planning on creating some gears out of cardboard and pasting them all over the exterior of the chest.
