This is one of my final projects for Wood I at RISD. The goal of this project is to utilize the ash veneer provided by the instructor, design and construct two molded laminations of different curvatures to be used in the structure for a vehicle. I designed two curves to form a race car framework and turned the wheels on lathe. In order to attach the wheels to the car, I made two wooden blocks that follow the curves and glued them at the bottom. Then I glued the wheels to wooden dowels so when the dowels turn inside the blocks, wheels on both sides will turn at the same time. I finish the car with several coats of danish oil for shine and protection.
