For this project I designed and constructed a curved floating panel system measuring 5 ft. high by 20 ft. long for artist Simon Gunning’s painting entitled Sunrise at the Rookery. We used a Laguna cnc router to cut a series of grooves in the baltic birch panels to allow them to flex and conform to the curved wall structure. The panels were mounted on similarly kerfed wall cleats mounted toward the upper and lower part of the panels. The 5 panels used floating tenons to join the edges of the panels making for an essentially seamless substrate.
