Chantel, Stefanie and Wendi came down after school at around 1 to compete the project. We finished around 4.30. :))
We have finally completed the project! Whoop! We added the support for the table so that it would be more stable. We’ve also attached the shelf to the table. As a lot of nailing had to be done, we helped each other hold the pieces of wood up so we could drill the nails in.
However we did not manage to add on the indents in the table cos erm there was kinda no way according to Mr Wayne other then drolling through another piece of wood before placing it on the current table. We decided not to do that as we were afraid the table would be a bit too heavy. But overall, we are very satisfied with the table and the many skills that we’ve have learnt. Also, I think it was a very great experience working together as we don’t usually work together much in class. As such, even tHougang there was a lot of friction between us in the beginning, we managed to try to work together to complete the project.
Stefanie, Wendi and Bernice came down today to try to complete the project.
We have got the table up and standing, however, we realised that the table was a bit shaky. As such, Mr Wayne had suggested we add a few more wood pieces along the bottom of the table so that it would be more stable. We will be continuing this tomorrow.
What we did for the table today:
Bernice and Stefanie used the electric drill to nail the table legs to the table today. It was extremely frustrating because the angel at which we had to drill at was very awkward and the clamp was constantly getting in the way.
Stefanie has cut the big backing for the table today. As far as she knows, we have all the wood pieces and we just need to attach all of them together tomorrow.
We’ve also completed the dustbin today! We’ve managed to hook the dustbin onto the table, even though its quite crude looking.
What we need to do tomorrow:
- attach wood pieces together to create the shelf
- put the wood filler in the holes of the table so there’s no holes
- add wood pieces to bottom of the table legs so that it’ll be more stable.
We finished sawing the table legs. Whoop! For next lesson, we need to cut the table and smooth out the whole table with sand paper.
Today we marked the table legs and the table itself. We are going to cut the table legs and table by next week.
This table consists of two levels. One display case on one level and another level for studying. This is the first level. The second level does not require much planning as it is more for users to display their stuff. Also, “staircase” refers to the two pieces of wood connecting the first level to the second.

With the first prototype, Prototype 0.5, we will be able to accurately measure and implement the correct measurements for our Self Balancing Scooter. This Prototype will be made purely of wood, with no mechanisms, and will be on a smaller scale. This smaller prototype will be able to efficient in allowing us to measure without much wastage. We have decided that the height where the seat will be situated from the platform will be 18cm, the height where the handle will be situated from the platform will be 31.5cm, and the wheel will have a diameter of 12cm. With this prototype, we will be able to confirm the important lengths needed for the building of our Self Balancing Scooter
