Background if you have not read my other posts: I will be making a lazy susan for my dining room table. I have decided to do this because I wanted to create something that would be useful and I could take home with me after the completion of this project.
The main aesthetic I am going for is the deutscher werkbund aesthetic we learned about in class. I like this aesthetic because it is very clean cut and simple and this is what I would like my final product to look like.
For my prototype, I decided to design a couple different ways that I want my wood to be carved out aesthetically. I was thinking about keeping it flat, but I cannot decide if I should go through with this or not.
- Keep the top of the lazy susan flat
- Carve out a round center
- Curved top
The reason I would like to keep it flat, is because I feel like the different carvings on the wood could keep it from its full capacity of holding things.
The carve out round center would be to look aesthetically pleasing. It is important to make it look aesthetically different and fun which is why I am considering doing this.
The next style I thought about was an elevated curve. I would also do this to make it aesthetically pleasing. I have to decide what I like best, but now that I have these different wood options, I can pick one to go with and stain it.
This prototype portion of the project has helped me think lots about what I want the final product to look like. I know for sure that the wood must be dark, but that is all.
