Artist and musician, Tim Sway, has constructed an acoustic double bass using reclaimed wood from pallets, decking and cupboard doors.
Tim designed the shapes for the bass in VCarve CAD software and cut them out using a CNC machine. To create the flowing curves that become the sides of the instrument, Tim used a laser cutter to make flexible, living hinges in the wood.
