The #blueridgetunnel bench printed to full scale. I’m prototyping the process this week and leading the workshop over at the Virginia Institute of Blacksmithing. This is to be a public piece once complete. Last I heard there are a couple spaces left. The design inspiration came from the view of the tunnel. As you stand at the mouth of it you can see the other side. Taking that into consideration I used the lines and negative space to reflect the perspective of the tunnel. It took on an #artdeco look. Works with the industrial feel for the location although the tunnel was created in the 1850s. #AxleForScale #blacksmith #dirtysmith #workshop #furniture
