GOLIATH-ground breaking project
I love furniture and I am not ashamed to say it. This summer will be exciting since in a year I was able to acquired a massive scoop of knowledge and skills that have yet to be applied in a real world setting-then again, who said this built is a joke?
GOLIATH will be a massive seven-foot bookshelf and mass storage unit consisting of a mixture of materials to execute the construction of such a massive piece. So far the idea has progressed into this mixture of materials in order to save wood and lumber use-thus, making the massive piece light, which roughly measures around 7'x3'x3'. ( at left,a model of the project to come).
My method of construction has evolved into a visual effect of light weight holding heavy weight-materials which are being considered are wood, MDF, stainless steel hardware, wood siding, plastic and perhaps the best feature; polycarbonate.
Expected date of completion-August 2009
