Materials: Expedit bookshelf side plank (15-3/8x54-3/4), (2) misc Ikea wood planks (15-3/8x54-3/4). Thickness of 3 planks varies from 3/4-2" and color is black/brown. Various misc. Ikea wood squares which vary in thickness from 5/8"-1". color: 80% black/brown, 20% medium brown. 2" coarse thread drywall screws. Power drill and circular saw.

Description: I had (3) inspiration points for designing and building the Cattikeawampus TV stand. (1) Disney, (2) Sustainability, (3) OCD.

Disney - Working at Walt Disney Imagineering I am continuously inspired by the fantasy and character of materials we detail. On one of our projects I was intimately involved with the woodwork design. As a joke, we ultimately ended using the term "cattywampus" to describe the off kilter / unbalanced nature and variety of the wood members (especially the wood rails/fence). The design of the stand was also based off visiting old book stores or coffee shops and seeing various sized books stacked in random unbalanced fashion and noticing the inherent beauty of the disorder (Wabi Sabi).
