Making a french curve

Mary Tsai crafts a classic drafting tool using a laser cutter and traditional woodworking techniques.

Apr 27, 2023

Mary Tsai is a contemporary furniture maker and AI/ML product designer for Adobe, based out of San Francisco. Though this project is “a bit of a deviation” from her usual work, Mary’s background in both architecture and design present themselves in her thoughtful approach to woodworking. Using CAD to create a tool for drafting by hand brings things full circle – in the best way possible.

Mary’s work can be found under Kodamari Design on both Instagram and Youtube.
