My cockpit design was made with Plywood and Perspex with my colleagues: the design evolved as we constructed.

Carpentry

 

I built this shed from scratch, on my own.

It’s still solid and watertight!

The baseplate is an irregular pentagon shape, to fit into the corner of the garden, so the design was quite challenging.

I reclaimed doors, other timbers, and sheet metal, to fit it out, and clad it in recycled hardwood (Australian Turpentine) – which used to hold up a quay in Sydney.

I’ve also made furniture from green oak and beech, using only traditional handtools. (Great courses here)

“Space Canyon” is constructed from MDF and waste plastic, hand painted and airbrushed.

It is part of a fly-through set for a student film on the UAL (University of the Arts, London) Prop-Making and Set Decorating course.
