Here is a selection of joinery types as a reference. We encourage students to explore alternative methods and tools to develop the new and existing models. Students will have to test different joints to find out the optimum performance for the model. All tools will be prepared prior to construction, and adjustments can be made according to the design.

On March 10th, we had a discussion with Stephen about this activity. The discussion was a great help to us. He gave us many useful suggestions. Stephen is satisfied with the session plan of this activity, but the form of the table is not intuitive enough, so he wants us to show it in the form of a timeline. At the same time, we also discussed the content of the site model. We believe that the site model is only used to deliberate on the form of furniture, but Stephen thinks that they should be displayed as a part of the results, not just as a tool for scheme deliberation. In the end, we also discussed the material and its use.
After this discussion, we gained a lot and then made subtle adjustments to the session plan to enrich and complete the entire activity.

[POWER TOOLS AND WOODWORK - DON’T FORGET ABOUT SAFETY!] During the prototype build, we will be using a variety of woodwork tools including bandsaw, electric drill, sand disks, etc. All students must have completed the workshop induction before using any of the equipments! Don’t worry, we will be supervising you guys, but also make sure you pay extra attention at all time, we don’t want any injuries to ruin your time during the event! Most importantly, we want you to enjoy the process, and hopefully learn from it too! Oh, and don’t forget to return the aprons after you finish!
