~ wiggle ~

I knocked together this prototype for a coffee table in a week earlier this summer. I wanted to test out two things with one proto:

The funky wifi-signal joints at the end of the maple legs were inspired by the beautiful mortice and tenons in traditional East Asian woodwork of building roofs. To save time, I made these joints using a quick set-up on the table router and some sharp hand chisels to clean up afterwards.

The wiggle running down the middle of the table was milled using a large 3 axis CNC router. This was to make sure the wiggle edges would align perfectly with each other when I glued the whole table up.

And finally - the assembly, glue, and varnish! Domino joints to secure the legs, polyurethane to finish.
