Description

Here’s my first project using Shaper Origin. I made one of the vine design and two of the Veronoi pattern.

The original stool is the Johann Stool from the Opendesk catalog. You can download the drawings in DXF format for the design from their website. In my case I just used the drawing as a reference and created the 3D model from scratch in Fusion 360 where I made some design changes and to account for the thickness of my material. We had used this stool as a giveaway in a promotion at a conference a couple of years ago and I have had one at home since then and knew of several changes I thought would be good (wider base for more stability, a slot in the top to make it easy to pick up and carry, and some shape instead of all straight lines). I also wanted to make a more interesting design by adding some cosmetic design changes.

For the stool with the vine pattern, I drew the vine as curves in a sketch and then cut along the curves using Origin to create a relief pattern. My wife then painted in the vine using some water colors. (It was what she had handy at the time.) And then I finished the entire stool in an oil-poly wipe on finish.

For the Voronoi pattern stool, I used the Voronoi App for Fusion 360 that’s available on the Fusion 360 App Store. It got me started and then I hand edited the splines it created quite a bit to better fit within the area I needed and to get the look I wanted.

The material is 1/2" Baltic birch and I used a 1/2" walnut dowel to create the contrasting wedges that hold it together.

I also used my standard hand-held router with a round-over bit to round the edges, and then lots of hand sanding to smooth everything.

This was my first project with Origin. If you haven't seen it before, it's a handheld CNC router. I know that doesn't seem to make sense at first but take a look at their website. Each time I use the tool I still have to shake my head in amazement at what it’s doing. It truly is some amazing technology.

The attached f3d has one leg with the vine and one leg with the Veronoi pattern so the single design can be used to create either stool.

Comments

Hi Roger,
Thanks for your comments. I used a natural oil-poly finish (http://www.rockler.com/general-finishes-arm-r-seal-urethane-topcoat-satin) so what you're seeing is just the natural color of the wood. Once a finish is applied, the edges do look nice. The only coloring added was to the vine relief pattern.

Hi Brian,
I like your design changes to the Opendesk stool.. I have just started to use baltic birch plywood to make some simple house hold accessories and game boards. I have been using my CNC to make remote control truck parts in Al. until I retired last year. I also have some experience with solid wood but almost none with plywood. How did you achieve the nice dark brown edges for your stool.
Thank you,
