Over the past 2 week I have been trying different methods to shape the chest but have run into some problems. I have been trying to make the box more curvy and flowing but the material I am using does not naturally allow for that to happen.
I tried thermoforming the material back home in my oven but that did not turn out the way I liked. The material was successfully able to change the shape of my part but it also distorted the pattern of the material. Also the shape was also not what I wanted it to be. This project requires some precise placement of holes and the chance in shape was not precise meaning that the fasteners would not line up properly.
I think I am going to go with my original design. The shape will be rectangular but I am confident that I will make the aesthetic work.
