Main Project Inspiration
I have been thinking about what I want to create for my main project for a long time. I went back and forth between a couple ideas, and the only thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to make something that would be useful to use in my house. The first thing that came to mind is our kitchen. We need a place where it is easier to store kitchen devices like spatulas and large spoons, because they are all currently jammed into a small container. I thought about making a way that you can turn something and easily grab a spatula. I could not quite pinpoint this idea though. Then, I thought about how to make our spices and sauces more accessible to everyone when we eat dinner together. We are consistently all sitting down for dinner together, and we always have to reach or pass the different spices and sauces throughout the meal. This sparked an inspiration of mine. Over the summer, I went to dim-sum with my coworkers, and it was very easy for everyone to try all of the different foods because of the turn table they had in the middle. I had honestly never seen this before. I did a bit of research and realized that this a common thing, and I could easily make a sizable one to put spices and sauces on.
Ideas Moving Forward
I haven’t exactly figured out which materials I will use to make this turn table happen yet. I have found different ideas online, and it looks like I can easily get a round piece of wood from a scrap store or home depot, but I haven’t decided yet. I also haven’t figured out what I will use to make it easily turn, but I am doing research on that. As for the color of wood, I want it to be a dark and classy wood color so I will most likely have to go to home depot or McGuckin’s to purchase some wood staining paint. I also want to decorate the top, so I will be on the look out for different things to help decorate it as well.
