Discover Stage: I learned that precision is important when cutting wood and that there are many different tools to cut wood. I learned that cutting acrylic sheets are more difficult than wood since it is thicker, more hazards, while being fragile as well .When dealing with glass. There were different safety precautions for differing tools. For instance, when it came to the bandsaw, students would have to position their fingers in a certain way which you don’t get injured. With the driver drill, you had to position your hands where wind isn’t expelled from the machine, you’d also have to lock the drill when you wanted to pass it along to a fellow student.
Define Stage: Before preparing the wood and the acrylic, we first had to learn the each and every one of the tools available to ensure safety precautions and that we know how to use the. Like what to do, what not do, and how to use them to produce a proficient result. Tools used to prepare the wood and acrylic were: Rulers, Pencils, Sharpies, Bandsaw, Drill/hole-saw, Jigsaw, Tape, and also protective lining Some limitations and constraints that were mentioned before like the time constraints being that we were only allowed to use the classroom which was the source of all the tools. Also, not all the wood pieces were measured exactly. Nor are all of the acrylic pieces. The glue made the blocks slide overnight so the layers wouldn’t be even the next day.
Develop Stage: As for materials to make this design possible I will need the bandsaw, glue, and the drill. I might not be able to curve the edges of the wood like i wanted to but at-least i got the base of the structure down.
Deliver Stage: I believe my finished work does meet all the requirements. I used all available materials to create my cube.
