proved by making them more varied? It is well to try several proportions until a satisfactory volume is established. This volume is to indicate the character of your stand, and too much care cannot be given to this fundamental process. Draw in the selected volume and erase all trial lines. This now stands as your creative effort.

Step 5. Check the volume for its functions. Will the stand be steady and stable and serve its purpose as to sizes?

Step 6. Draw the mass and space divisions and develop several designs. Figures 18 and 19, Plate 2.

Step 7. Form, the final step, is left for later consideration. Keep all masses and spaces varied. Note that your feeling, your sensitivity to proportioning of spaces and masses, is given full opportunity of expression.

Step 8. All thought in the preceding steps is given to creative efjort, plus function as a control. At this point reverse the steps of Method One. By transfer lines and foreshortening triangle, carry the volumetric and other depths to the line of measure by the foreshortening triangle and the transfer lines and, selecting the scale approaching the desired size, record the dimensions and proceed to check them for functional and proportionate reasons, as will be developed in the next chapter. Many variations of Methods One and Two will occur to the designer, particularly as he increases in knowledge. Note Figures 20 and 21 for measuring devices.

The following chapteis will consider in detail various aspects of modern design as it affects the volumetric casing and its space and mass divisions.
