Wooden Water Carrier - A collaborative project. The water carrier was designed to transport 5 gallons of water, is minimal in design, and is constructed completely of layered and bent cherrywood veneer. It is ergonomic, conforming along the spinal curve, thus provides lumbar support when worn, as well as being adjustable due to the notched belt. The joint at the top takes advantage of the natural properties of wood veneer, and is thinner there, allowing it to be flexible enough to fit over the wearer's head.
