This is the folder that I have compiled for my Leaving Certificate Construction Studies project. This folder shows my research into many pieces of furniture and materials right through to the production stages involved to produce a finished piece of furniture.
In this folder I have included:
Scaled working drawing which I built my project from.
This hand book gives the reader an account of how:
I designed and constructed my project.
The problems I encountered and how I solved them.
Health and safety aspects.
Experiments that I carried out.
The aim of this folder is give an insight into:
How furniture is constructed.
The hours of work put into completing the project.
The breakdown of the costs of materials.
