With two weeks before the Wall Shelf Build-Off, I spent some time this afternoon working on design ideas. I filled three pages of sketches with a variety of designs.
When sketching, I like to use pen and don’t spend more than half a minute on each.
I use the sketches to help me figure out what I like and what I don’t like. Sometimes I will sketch different variations of details, like square and rounded corners, right over each other.
If a detail is difficult to draw, or is an important part of the design, I may add an arrow and label. I may draw in the grain if it is part of the design, but I usually focus on basic concepts and form.
Feel free to use these ideas for your Wall Shelf Build-Off design.
I’m always interested in your feedback, but particularly interested in your thoughts on these sketches. Do any of the ideas stand out to you?
