Very nice. I enjoyed all the videos of the build. I’ll bet that you can’t not stop to look and touch it each time you pass by it. I can’t wait to see you build matching chairs. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist).

amazing work Andrew!
despite having watched the video of making the slats several times, i dont understand how the template is being used in creating the continuous shape… can you explain it some more? how do you determine how much to rotate or move the template? how do you come up with the shapes / cut-offs in the template?

In response to Antti:

The template rotates about 1 degree between each slat, I just marked this out by hand with some marks on the part of the template that registers against the slat, so that I knew I was turning the rotating, circular part of the template the same amount each time.

As far as the offcuts, I just kinda guessed, cut out some simple shapes, and just kept making them progressively deeper into the template with various sanders. Hope that helps.

Have your say...
