System: An assemblage combination of things or parts forming a complex or unitary whole. (dictionary.com)
I cut my 2x4 into 4 peices and from there cut each board 2 in shorter than the last ending up with 9 peices ranging from 18'' to 2''. In doing this I used every peice of my 2x4.
System of Patterns
I feel my project is a good representation of a system of wood. One can see the patterns, which is an important part of a system. Also, one can see how i connected the wood using only fingerjoints and drilled holes that percise mearsurements to them which represents my wholes system's measurements working with 2''.
I used a good amount of the machines down in the woodshop which was an interesting experience because I had never really worked with powertools before. I found it fun once I got the hang of it and can see myself taking more trips down to the woodshop.
