Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The recent but prominent use of imitation wood plastic components in wooden furniture construction intrigued this writer and encouraged him to investigate the subject. The purpose of this study is to investigate industry and literature to see what materials and procedures are used in making decorative plastic parts which resemble wood used in the construction of wooden furniture. It is the intent of the writer to create a mold and cast some parts, to determine whether or not the fabric8tion of plastic components would be a suitable activity to 5nstitute in a high school Industrial Arts program, and if so, to plan a unit on plastic parts in furniture construction for the purpose of enriching the woodworking curriculum. This would also provide the researcher with a better understanding of the field of plastics.
