[Above] I’m still slowly working on the first two of ten chairs I’ll be building. ‘ll blame the filming for slowing me down. One of the backs has a flaw in it, chip out from my router and I’m trying to fix it with sawdust and glue. three tries so far. he photo shows the two chairs nested one n the other (a feature!) and the two backs. A third back is in the bending clamp. I also now have some data on materials:
From 2 1”x12”x8’ I can get the frame parts for 3 chairs.
From 1 24”x48” sheet of 1/2” plywood I can get 3 seat pieces.
From 1 24”x48” sheet of 3/16” plywood I can get strips to make 3 backs.
I’ll end up with some small yet useful scraps from this project!
[Below] I have this idea where I may be able to make a toy xylophone from a 2×4. It’s an experiment, but I have hopes. So far it’s working. I cut some keys out today, cutting an arch from the back, and they do have different tones. You’ll hear more about this if the prototype works adequately.
