Crate it up

As the year winds down, graduating students must begin to figure out where their completed work will live beyond SVA. Today, second-year  MFA Fine Arts  student Sadia Fakih came to the Visible Futures Lab to work on shipping crates for her collection of sculptures to be sent to Toronto, Canada, where her future adventures lie! The crates must be large enough to fit her works encased in foam padding, and durable enough to withstand the perils of the shipping process, so Sadia is checking her dimensions and cutting braces to support the panels of the crate, but first she needs to reduce uneven edge and for this she chose to use the VFL's orbital sander.

While the process may take longer than using the circular or jig saws, Sadia has more control over evening out the adjoining edges of her crate -- plus the Festool orbital sander collects the dust generated by sander with an integrated vacuum system, making clean up quick and easy.
