Since there are lots of art students and the like here, would be cool to see some of their creations.

I'll start this off, here's a lamp I did for a friend's house warming present. I designed and made everything except the lamp shade (modified). Wiring hidden through the legs and the frame is powder-coated. Sorry for the crappy "photo shoot", very distracting background...

That table makes my lamp look like a kindergarden project [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img] So far my stuff has only been for fun, not for school/sale so won't look as professional looking as some of the stuff here.

I'm into experimental musical instruments as well, I built these two a few years ago.

i built all of my old living room furnature... not real cool though... took ideas from a store called 'this end up' and modified them to fit my needs.... everything has held up over 7 years... built a couch, love seat, coffee table (painted to look like an ikea rug we have) and entertainment center. not bad for a bunch of lumber

the second one is anchored to the floor(or will be) by a .500" stainless plate.currently it doesnt need to be anchored as gravity isnt very strong in autocad. thats a 3d model created and rendered in autocad 2000.heres another view

That thing's not really a harp, actually more like a cello then a harp but really more like a springed zither. Experimental instruments don't follow the usual logic as traditional instruments (not modified instruments but their own) Look into Harry Partch and his instruments [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]

The second piece is like a thumb piano (kalimba) from Africa, only alot bigger and uses mallets instead of your thumb.

The biggest instrument I made was 8 feet wide and 6 feet high. Had to take it down, too much space. Never took a pict of it though [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dry.gif[/img] Haven't made any instruments in at least 5 years, but been itching...

Just finsihed my sculpture project, deisgned, built, upholstered, etc all by myself. Didn't turn out as nice as I thought it would but for someone that never sewn anything before yet alone upholstery work it turned out decent. The mechanics needs some fine tuning but it's a scuplutre class not an engineering class so I'm done for now. I was going to make a cover for the chassis to hide everything when folded out but not enough time.


It's just a see-say mechanics in the bottom (push the seat cushion down and the arm/back rest goes up), very crude but works. Maybe I'll give this design anotehr try for a later class. I'm happy with the design/concept, but the overall build is satisfactory.

It's just a seesaw contraption underneath. When one side goes down, the other side goes up. Crude but it works. To be marketable I don't think the see-saw would be the best option, swings forward too much (but that can be fixed). Probably sliders (like in dresser cabinets) or a gear with toothed arms to it (like some window regulators) would be more marketable, would pop straight up/down without swinging in a forward motion.
