Jye Harry, Beardie’s Beast (Student Awards 2017)

My design is one that I thought was unique, as it has wrap around American walnut legs on a blackbutt carcase (1700mm W x 500mm H x 540mm D). I chose these timbers as I like the grain in both as well as their colours. Mr Beard (a teacher) wanted me to make it for him, so I had to incorporate his design features. These were shelves in the ends to house figurines, an open shelf area for his hard drives and a gloss finish. I used mortise and tenon, rebate housing, biscuit and dowel joints throughout the construction. Jye Harry, Year 12, Kerang Technical High School. Teacher: Jonathon Roberts
