Laminated kitchen counter i built for a client in a
plywood dome in 1972 ? The shelving above the counter leans ionto
the dome and assists access to the higher shelves. I became interested
in laminating while boat building in 1970. I liked carpentry very
much, but living in Maine and learning about the generally unsustainable
consumption of the woods eventually influenced me towards concrete.
Besides structural design can really flow much more with concrete.
My ferrocement kitchen photo follows, (built in 1978).
Below: a laminated bench for a greenhouse. This was
partly covered with latex modified cement. The upper surface was
thickly painted with urethane resin. And wet flower pots have
rested on it for many years. The lower section allows access higher
up the adjacent wall, while at the same time affording a very
compact, space saving mid room "skylight" to a room
downstairs. I plan to diagram this in 1999. Stay tuned.
Table inspired by a winter shingling roofs. Made from
actual cedar shingles.

Searching Synergy ........ Free Exchange of Ideas
Enersearch was incorporated in 1980 but never materialized financially. A synergy of concepts were developed and are reflected in the pages of this series. The synergy continues as a single handed effort of Bo Atkinson, in Maine, USA.
