Well it should its a inspirational project by me from:-
Michael Makarevich’s (CrazyRussianWorkshop) Post Organic Bar Stool from Cherry.
Michael didnt post too much construction detail and I was curious how it was made, so rather than ask a heap of questions I thought it would be better to find out for myself by experiment.
So I set to work today.
From my pile of recycled wood came five suitable pieces to make the legs and braces
A tidy up with the thicknesser, and on with it.
Then some temporary plates to assist in the assembly were fitted.
I determined the legs should be 750mm and a splay angle of 5 deg should do it.
Now the seat will be about 300 to 340mm sq or thereabouts
So I cut a blank and screwed it on, inverted the frame and aligned the legs and measured the bottom distance cut a piece of MDF to be used as a temporary blank and fitted it, and then from Michaels finished picture tried to determine how I would go about its rough construction.
The internal diagonals shouldnt be too much of a problem so I left them for the time being.
The perimeter diagonals are a different matter, they were too hard just yet so I looked at the horizontal foot rest, it was less tricky so I started on it.
Just about all the perimeter braces will have to have 5 deg tapering bevels on them as well as the foot rest but at least it was at 90 deg.
I fiddled about and figured out how to cut them, got it done and dry fitted it up, then realised I needed to add wings to allow for the curved carving radius later.
I hope this will be a sucessful build, all a bit on the ambitious side but what the hell can only try, no doubt another prototype as its pine, but it should work.
I will post it as a completed project in a coupla days. (yeah right)
Just so you will not be dissapointed there will be no Miss Makita 2016 featured,....unless some hottie looks over the fence as I am working!...( and my wife doesnt see her)
Continues on, more tomorrow До свидания!
