For my Senior Thesis project, I wanted to get lost in the woodshop, focussing solely on the wood in front of me and no initial planning. Of course, some planning went along, but I allowed my vanity to take the shape it desired. The inspiration came from a full moon I admired in the penthouse suite in RISD's best dorm; then everything else fell into place. 

The construction consisted of wacky wood and walnut paperback veneer. I had to use kerf bending to allow the pieces to bend sharply. Within the kerfs, I highlighted my process by inlaying leather piping, a technique I learned from making cowboy boots. I constructed my own brass hinges and added strip lighting around the mirror to mimic the moon.
