Once the pieces are assembled, their stepped miter joints are glued together and clamped to dry. Wrong routs a three-millimeter perpendicular groove along every 90-degree corner of each piece. The groove exposes some real plywood, along with a hint of the structure–—offset baldly by the black paint surrounding it, and by Woods’s colorful prints. Asked what the highlight of manufacturing is, Wrong laughs wearily, and cites the moment of watching a mechanized router blade cut away and reveal raw plywood. “This element shows you the real material, while the faces are printed with an artistic version of it,” he says. “It’s an aesthetically pleasing meeting of materials. The devil is in the detail.”
