Scrap wood chair

Here is another Scrap wood project. Inspired by a chair from Italian Edra, however this chair is made from real scrap wood. I started out by making a basic frame from 1×4s and then added plywood pieces and other scraps. It was very fun to do and I didn’t have to cut straight and measure too much.

cool – you could put a couple of those in (or just outside) the shop for relaxing or mentally troubleshooting out your next project.

This certainly is one of the most unique chairs I have seen.

Nice use of scraps.

ROFL! Now I know what to do with all the lil pieces I have left from projects. I am most impressed with the trim on the arms. I think you may have created some modern art there. One thing about it, I bet it dont move around in a wind storm ;)

superb chair…it’s got real texture and design…like something out of museum of modern whatevers…excellent…and I’ll bet it’s comfortable in it’s own way…a few pillows and it’s a conversation piece.

Awesome MDF! Could you share a set of the plans done in sketchup? :))

The signature line at the end of my posts should be yours. You earned it.
