    In my final development I added the finishing touches to my design, creating a bespoke product ready to be sold to a client. The product has been design and manufacted up to the highest quality and standard of hand craftmanship. The final alterations to my design was changing the base to the sam

    To complete the construction of the wheel lamp I looked at ways to fixing in place both ends of the bike wheel. One end was secured to the base using a groove dug into the base and then fixed with a bolt underneath. The other end explored different ways I could attach the light fitting to the wooden

    As a part of my development I planned my design using CAD to get an idea the final result. I focused on fixing the bike axel to the wooden base and shaping the base to suit the chosen style. Metal drilling, sanding and bending techniques were use to create the stand-to-axel bracket. Wood sawing,
