Airfoil Desk: From sketch to aluminum: Part III

On our last post in this series, we described our detailed blueprint and how it was created.  From that print, we will create a construction manual with detailed drawings, dimensions and instructions on how to build each part that makes up the Airfoil Desk.  We will use this construction manual in the shop along with wood cutting jigs to create the wood core of the Airfoil Desk which later gets wrapped in metal.  The desk has some challenging geometry so its absolutely critical that each part comes out perfectly on specification.  If one part were improperly sized it would trigger a domino effect during assembly throwing each part out of alignment.
