20” x 20” x 20” bamboo + mahogany flooring finished with tung oil

This project was motivated by an interest in reclaiming bamboo and mahogany flooring scrap in a functional manner that employed precise joinery and symmetry in 6

form. Aiming to maximize the amout of useable space, I explored form through rough sketching various combinations of a square unit before drafting a model in Rhino.


The design can be assembled efficiently and without the use of metal fasteners. Each wall slots into its respective joint and distributes the structure’s load, maximizing functional space while organizing the form.

Balsa Deck Clear Plastic Balsa Railbands Paulonia Honeycomb Balsa Bottom

The honeycomb bands were wet molded in a jig and the sandwich construction was glued and vacuum bagged to enhance bonding. Resin and fiberglass render the handplane impervious to water, and the strap allows one’s hand to firmly guide the plane.

Designed to increase the planing surface of one’s hand, this “handplane” is built with hollow construction techniques and laminated with
