Howdy everyone, this is my first time posting, in fact it’s my first time on this site, but I’ve been reading around and it seems like a nice community.
So, I needed a new project and after much deliberation I’ve decided I’m going to construct my own Eames style lounge chair. But so far I only have a couple of solid measurements to go off of, and it would make the process a heck of a lot easier if I could get a some accurate measurements from someone who actually owns an Eames lounge chair, I know it’s a bit of an odd request but it would really help me out.
Below is a picture detailing exactly what I need, I’ve numbered it so it’ll be easier to respond with the measurement (just put the number and then the measurement next to it) (inches, centemeters, millimeters, whatever is fine).
I realize this is a bit of a stretch but I’m not sure where else to get the information and I don’t think eyeballing it would be the most effective way to go about it.
Also I’m wondering if anyone has any experience with steam bending plywood, there isn’t /too/ much of a bend on the Eames chair so I’m hoping it won’t be all that problematic. Or if anyone has any advice on thin strip lamination including where to get large sheets of thin wood that would also be really helpful.
Anyway, thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out, I’m looking forward to getting to know some people around here and hopefully learning a lot!
I’ll be sure to make another topic and update it with pictures of my process/progress once I get to that point.
