Field trip to Feit Shoe store on 2 Prince street.
All of the wood in the store were plywood. The wood shaft formed in a frame structure was plywood and metals attached to it. The staircase-like plywood shelf in the back where they store shoes are known to be “sturdy.”
Materials used in the store were:
- glass for the windows and mirror
- plywood for the frame, shoe displays, cashier desk, and as a holder for shoes behind the shaft.
- metal frames are used for structuring the wood frame/to keep it standing
This corner store was really nice and I liked it because it had lots of wood, mirrors, glass windows and minimal colours. I learned that plywood is one of the strongest types of wood and that is because it has lots of layers.
