Writing for Furniture and Cabinetmaking Magazine - Jan's gallery article on making her 'Meala' dressing table
We are excited to read student, Jan Lennon's, gallery article in issue 268 (March edition) of Furniture and Cabinetmaking Magazine.
Jan has written a feature piece on how she made her 'Meala' dressing table, her final project on our 40 week course.
Jan's dressing table is an incredibly successful piece from design through to final product.
Jan joined us from a background in CGI and product design, and from day one, her ability to use drawing and 3D visualisation software to develop and plan her designs has led to some seriously impressive designs. Jan's attention to detail, natural flair for design and inquisitive nature about a variety of technologies enriches her design make projects - which are of a very high standard.
Jan's 'Meala' dressing table demonstrates high level cabinetmaking and is a testament to the making precision and high quality skills that Jan has developed in the last year. Made out of American Walnut and Olive Ash, it has a tambour style detail on the front rail. The 'Meala' table demonstrates a multitude of processes in one project, with a lot of work going into creating curves, seen on many components of the table including the shaped legs and main body of the piece.
Jan and some of our other students have been invited to write about their making experiences by Furniture and Cabinetmaking magazine - we we greatly encourage. Not only is this a fantastic opportunity to share the project with the cabinetmaking community, but it is great publicity, especially for students like Jan who are going on to create thier own furniture buisness start up.
