Filling book ends with designed “biscuit” joinery method, hopefully.

Mold internal workings constructed with white poster board.
Constructed with a foamy clay. Conceptual water wall obstructing light while producing a calming effect and sound.
Getting ready to pour some test molds. The first contraption only varies the thickness of the modules in section which is not enough variation.
So through many trials and errors Ive developed an adjustable/flexible mold that introduces six points of controlled variation to allow section thickness to conform to the path of water flowing down and thouroughout the waterfall wall. This mold is made up of hinges the unfold the cast out of the mold to eliminate issues.
On to some test pours.
Continuing to develop original ideas.
Early ad hoc design/install concrete countertops inlay/veneer cultured stone tile. Outdoor kitchen/living poolside 2005/2006.
Spring 2007 design/install outdoor kitchen/living. Custom concrete countertops, cultured stone, prefabricated stainless steel doors and drawers.
Custom concrete countertops/design. Cheng was a favorable inspiration.
Expanding off of the earlier projects with this idea, in hopes of developing a full scale process. The idea developed suddenly and initial design thinking is more of the focus before actual construction of modules and paperwork. The first two projects immediately moved into construction of models and this approach will develop with a new approach.
