Mabuhay to all LJ,
I have been researching for a technique or just a simple way of joining metals to wood. I could not find the most economical way. My objective is to recycle scraps both wood and metal. I have a great collection and still growing source for scrap toner catridges from copying machine. Usually, I found stainless rods 4-12 mm diameter x 6 to 12 inches. alluminum pipes rolled precisely and sometimes coated with rubber. The rest of these toner or other copyer dispossal are carbon plastic. Small bearings, bushing and various screw collected. Sometimes, spring of varying sizes can be found.
I am thinking whether I can make a chair made from these scraps: wood and metal. Somebody told me that the best craftsman and a designer can be seen in making a chair. Like Sam Maloof, the style is there. But for me, I will be contented if only I could make something of the scraps. There is only one problem….....
