I couldn’t spend much time in my workshop, yesterday and today, but really enjoying making this chair.
From what I have done by the day before, I figured out the feet are too wide, and it make the whole thing like “Gigantic Robot”, so I made them thin. And to keep the two feet in the right position, I decided to use some sticks between. Put 5 of them all not close to the front and back, because I didn’t want people to stand on it.
Made some “ass shape” of the seat, used router at first, then chisels and Random Orbital Sander.
Made some more round sticks for the back, I first thought I need 6 of them, but maybe 4 is good enough.
Now I just put them together and sit there for a try.
Mmm, maybe this is much stronger and stable than I thought. As a big man like me sitting there, it moves a little bit to back and forth. But my kids are not heavy like me now, so I think I can just go without the support legs for now. Maybe I can add it later when my son grows up.
OK, here are some photos.
