Plywood Re-usable Christmas Tree Prototype is based on the classic Frasier Fir, often used for Christmas trees in the Pacific Northwest.
It stands 5’-0” tall and is fabricated in two leaves that slide together with a slip-notch. When not in use, the leaves slide apart and can be flat packed for efficient storage. 1/8” Diameter holes and 1/2” grooves allow for the addition of lights and ornaments. The profile is cut from 1/2” thick apple-ply for its strength and crisp laminated edges. The prototype dimensions have been engineered so that a plywood tree can be cut from one 4’ x 8’ sheet of plywood.
This prototype was made by BUILD, an architecture company.
