Chapter 15. Poke Credenza

The Poke Credenza employs your knowledge of 2D modification, pocketing, and multi-materials in a single project. The Poke is a small shelving unit that is enclosed by a set of three sliding door panels. Making furniture with moving parts utilizes all of the digital skills you’ve acquired so far, and really puts your fabrication technique to the test. Designing the doors themselves will challenge your creativity with material experimentation, and give you a chance to develop 2D patterns that work specifically with a CNC tool. The end result is a useful piece of furniture that demonstrates both your digital craft and ingenuity.
