People in their early twenties move around a lot, which makes it difficult to buy furniture. Also, as a fourth year I realized I was spending a lot of time on my computer and not enough time making stuff with my hands. With this project I wanted to improve my woodshop skills and make something by hand, for the love of books!


Liam is 24 years old.


Liam has not settled down. He has moved from his hometown, to college, to an internship, to grad school and to his first job. He has bought furniture from IKEA because it is inexpensive but it ends up being difficult to move once it is assembled.
