One Man's Junk - Chair #1: The inspiration and the junk

07-01-2008 11:58 PM by Zuki | 8 comments »

As most people have stated this project is going to be a very interesting one. Unlike the Winter Awards and my very secretive Project X . . . with this project I will be an open book. What I plan to make is a chair (as DW claimed my other one) to use at my computer. Here is my inspiration. We have had this office chair kicking around for years. It is still very comfortable and the proportions are great even though it is in very rough shape. And here is the junk . . . the ...

Splash Chair

06-07-2008 02:16 AM by Dr_Unix | 0 comments »

Talk about extreme curves, this design takes the cake! Even though it wasn’t built out of wood, it very well could have been. Fibeglass makes it lighter. Here’s how the chair was made: “The chair was sculpted at 1/8th scale using Sculpey clay. From there, the model was cut into ¼ inch slices. These slices were scanned, blown up to full scale, and plotted to be used as a template for the full scale model. From there, the templates were adhered to 2 inch pink insulat...

A carved, ebonized, and gilded, wing back chair. (Pix)

05-21-2008 04:24 AM by John Fry | 15 comments »

This commissioned piece is a hand carved, ebonized, faintly gilded, and upholstered, wing back chair. It is upholstered in black leather and faux hide, over 18 hand tied springs. It has come to be known as “Bambi”. As always, I welcome your comments AND critiques on this latest project. This custom designed and fit chair is for a very petite lady who has always had problems with chairs fitting her. It is a “modified” wing back chair that is actually designed to be more of an office chai...

Work In Progress #1: Patio Furniture

03-05-2008 07:28 PM by Ike | 2 comments »

Alright, I have decided that I would like to build my own patio furniture instead of buying a set from “the big box stores.” I took the design idea from a table I saw at one of those stores, but it is slightly different, also I didn’t like the chairs that they had with the set, those are still in design phase. here is the table’s design that I have drawn using google’s sketch up: I’ll continue to work on the chair designs, but I was sort of inter...

A chair for my office #1: First construction photos

02-27-2008 08:25 PM by Dan Lyke | 5 comments »

Sunday night we were going to start on the bathroom vanity, but Charlene didn’t feel like hanging out in the shop, so I went out to make some sawdust. We’ve got a bunch of spare birch, so I took the scrappiest of it and started to push the limits of how I interacted with our tools and wood. This is where I’ve gotten to so far. I had a chair for my office, one of those standard el-cheapo office chairs you get from the big box stores, and it broke. Then we moved, in t...

Transforming a Kitchen Cookbook Nook

01-07-2008 06:41 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 15 comments »

I have a client that lives close to me, and we have had a lot of fun designing and building things for their home. They sort of “pushed” me into quitting my day job by offering a long term commission to transform their home with functional-art pieces one at a time, according to an overall game plan. They had a general idea of what they wanted, but needed someone to turn the dream into wood. They were willing to adapt their ideas to mine, and vice versa, and I have really appr...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #14: Oneway Mfg

10-30-2007 03:27 PM by MsDebbieP | 10 comments »

My latest journey has taken me not far from my hometown. I had the opportunity to speak with Kevin Clay of Oneway Mtg, which is located in Stratford, Ontario. The HistoryOneway Mtg, which is owned by Kevin’s father, began as a contract machine shop. One day they received an order for a chuck. The order was canceled after the products were made and they were left with 50 chucks, which they then sold to other buyers. From there, the path led them to where they are today. Vision for The Fu...

Building a Carved Functional-Art Chair to Match the Tilt Front Desk

10-22-2007 06:17 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 16 comments »

I’ve had a fun week. I’m building a chair to match the Tilt Front Desk that I previously posted, and blogged about. If you want to read about the desk, the posting link is given at the bottom of this blog. The desk chair is designed to fit the customer’s kitchen, as the desk is being placed in the kitchen area. She loves to cook, and hopes to move her laptop computer station to the kitchen where she can capture her thoughts on her cooking blog, and do more writing. ...

Morris Chair Lalapalooza #3: The End Products...

10-16-2007 12:10 AM by schroeder | 12 comments »

The rest…I had cut the parts for the ottomans and glued up (after a dry fit) – I finished the glue up – Then everything into the fume tent. I put it all in with 33% ammonia for 24 hours at about 65 degrees. When they come out they are almost black, a deep shade of gray – After putting on a coat of Arm R Seal sealer, everything turned a rich Carmel color. The final result – one of two finished and one of five in process. I also built two tables that complimented the ...
