Chapter 8. Rotational Stools

Now that you’ve learned what goes into setting up a CAM file, you’re ready to cut a pair of Rotational Stools. The following pages take you through the basics of digital technique, where the precision of the digital file meets the physical variability of material, fabrication, and assembly. This first project shows you how to create tight-fitting joinery by putting the basic concepts of measuring material and scaling files into practice. It also walks you through how to evaluate fit, and it offers simple techniques for assembly, drilling, and fastening.
