The coolest design. A full size version would weight 1200 lbs Charlie :-))

This is very cool. I agree with Charlie. I would like to see this full size. I wonder what a full sized one would weight. hmmmmm

If you make it out of laminated plywood, you could cut each piece close to the shape to minimize shaping after glue-up. You could also leave the majority of the base open. Have the side be maybe an 1 1/4” thick and the seat 2” thick, that would cut a lot of the weight out. Looks cool!

I’ve wanted to do some stuff like this, but have such a hard time wrapping my brain around how all the pieces need to be cut…. How’s the big one coming. – perhaps it has to be built in place!
