The SpiralShelf was designed and built by Matt Davis, who is… me. The helix is made of shaped red oak. 2”x.75”x10” strips were cut and glued in stacks of 3-4. These stacks were then shaped and sanded using a belt sander and a little help from a bandsaw every now and then- because red oak, being a hard wood, was a naïve choice of wood for sanding. The shelves themselves are walnut and are sized and formed as logical continuations of the curve of the helix.
The helix arms themselves are self-relating and similar. They are sized from the smallest arm. This is multiplied by the golden ration to obtain the middle arm. The middle arm is then again multiplied by the golden ration to obtain the longest arm.
