This week we had to create something big with recycled materials. A materials search was realized close to the FabLab. It is an industrial area and it is easy to find wood or some type of
building materials next to this one. Finally we had to re-use these materials to give them a new life.
Each week there one day in Barcelona that you can take the junk to the street for specialized cleaning staff pick them up.
The same day we leave in search of material for the task of this week. The opposing material was very diverse and not always in ideal conditions but,
we find sufficiently for all.
As the wooden pieces that we have are not very big sizes, the goal is to create a module that stack and rotated from a shelf or a stool or...
The initial piece is a golden rhomb of plywood of 2cm of thickness. The unions between they base on the union called "dovetail", the movement prevents in two axes,
to fix the third axis, I have used an extra piece as wedge brought in pressure, making use of the tolerances of the material.
Test with laser cut
First of all I did a few tests in the laser cut
After checking that the model worked properly, I decided to mill two pieces in the router. To verify that the tolerances of the boards were correct
