Final Project Proposal

  • Basic project concept– What are you making, and why? How are you going to create it?
  • Sketches/mock-ups– Rough outline of what the final project will look like and do
  • Rough timeline for completion– approximate deadlines for completing the stages of your project (modeling, prototyping, final fabrication, documentation, buffer time for mistakes, etc.)

Brainstorming:

custom wooden keyboard keys and case

Light switch laser cut

Laser cut chess game with drawer and slots for the pieces

Acrylic laser cut map of squaw with wood backing

Idea 1:

Laser cut game “box” with interchangeable board and drawers to hold games in. I would make this as a present to my boyfriend, just cause he likes board games too much. I think it would be a cool idea to harness my laser cutting (and maybe 3d printing) skills to build a 3D usable object. The box would be taken for traveling, or just for a neatly stored gaming box for a living room, common area.

Idea 2:

Laser cut wood and Acrylic map of Sqauw Valley Ski resort in Lake Tahoe. It would be a fathers day gift to my dad. It is his favorite place in the entire world and this could be an abstract map he could hang in his office! This one is a little more simple, but I think if done right would like extremely cool. I would have a piece of wood for the backing and the have an elevated acrylic sheet of the mountains (with small engraved details, like shape, etc.). I would then use more acrylic or color in ski lines for a modern look and view (plus my dad really only cares about the ski runs and his favorite ones)
