Goin with the Grain

Using a homemade desktop wood streamer out of a piece of PVC pipe and an electric teapot, I've been able to transform static basswood strips into bending, curving and elegant (well almost) structural ribs. So far the 3rd prototype has been able to hold on standard masonry brick and with the final prototype four times the size of the last holding double that weight should be no problem. The next step is exploring the structures connection to the ground plane and addressing the bold connections through the wood.
