Engraved sketches... Assembly mode

Above is my assignment for my How to Make (Almost) Anything class. Our assignments are weekly, and this week our assignment was to “Make Something Big.” I designed and built something big that I needed and would have space for; a bookshelf to place on my chest of drawers. I engraved the following sketches:

  1. Arc de Triomphe, France
  2. Queens Royal College, Trinidad
  3. Mamallapuram, India
  4. NAPA, Trinidad
  5. In The End: Dance And Rejoice (Trinidad Carnival 2011)
  6. Abstract Architecture

    They are really working you up there, but I see the challenge is producing good work.
