So my review was this past Thursday and it went well. Criticism focused largely on the thickness of the members maybe being slightly too big and the backrest being kind of the last thing I paid attention to–both legitimate comments. Otherwise, feedback was overwhelmingly positive. I thought you would appreciate seeing all the other projects here. They turned out fantastic. Keep in mind that many of these people had zero woodworking experience before this semester. You can also kind of see the review format. The presenter stands next to his or her piece and talks about the design and process of making it to a small panel of reviewers comprised of faculty and local and visiting architects. The panel asks questions, criticizes, and compliments.
I am proud to say that I won a Design Excellence Award. It feels really good! Thank you Mark!
