DiResta: Makerspace Tables


My friend Dr. Danny Aviv, a STEM educator, asked me to create 15 tables for his new makerspace, The Idea Incubator (“The Inc.,” for short).

The Inc. is located at Schechter Westchester High School in New York, about 20 miles north of New York City. In the process of making the 15 tables, I needed to streamline the fabrication and assembly, so throughout the process I developed a few tricks. Please watch and enjoy!
