Completion of the CNC work meant it was time for finishing at the OGA Design shop where Daly Company has shop space.
Preparing for the bench’s arrival, Pat had researched different methods of finishing. We learned there are numerous products on the market well suited for our application. However, John, of local Windsor Plywood, stressed the importance of picking a product most suitable for the process.

Before applying the finish, we sanded, fitted the legs, caped the sides and installed the four metal pegs that hold the entire bench together.
The joint we designed only needed two metal pegs, bored into the legs and aligned with holes on the top piece for security. Accuracy of these holes was crucial. Pat built a jig for both pieces to ensure the holes aligned perfectly. To streamline the process in the future, We will cut the holes in the CNC process to avoid having to ‘fiddle’ with the holes for correct size and increased accuracy.
All that’s left is to install the color changing LED's, to the underside of the bench, and transportation to Buildex 2013 at the Vancouver Convention Center. The bench sat at the STRUCTURE program in the IDSWest booth February 13 - 14.
