Ok, This is a Tantra Chair…. It’s meant for …. ADULT activities, if you get my drift.

I think it’s a really cool piece of furniture. How would I go about making one? Any suggestions?

MMMMM interesting…..

If I were to attempt something like that, I would cut the 2 sides out of plywood. Then I would attach a series of cross supports and then a couple layers of 1/4” luann bent to the contours of the top.

The you can figure of how to cover the thing :)

Adult activities? I dunno… that looks like it’d be pretty uncomfortable for a bridge game. To each their own, I guess…

Bending Plywood is what you’d need. Search LJ blogs – there are a few that highlight bending ply.

I’m not sure, but my back hurts just thinking about it.

I have no idea how to build one of these. LOL and man I think I am really getting old… And better make sure you cover it with a fabric that you can BLEACH heavily. ;)

With my back, if I ever got into that thing I might not ever get back out. However, plywood sides seems like a good start like just like JB said.

Ahhh thos “Make or Buy” decisions…

Actually i think it would be pretty straightforward. Make from 3/4 birch ply three matching patterns, add blocking and put bending ply on it. That would give you the “sculpted block”, add block feet and upholster it.

Norm could do it in under 30 minutes ;-) Just 1 show!

I too think plywood sides and ends is the way I would then band saw some thicker material for the top curve edges and screw some say 2×3 strips along the top that are let in the top pieces. then put 2-3 layers of 1/4” ply over the top of the strips . add some cross pieces to prevent racking and take to an upholsterer

I was thinking very much the same thing… Plywood sides (I’d like to do wooden sides and just upholstered top). Considering this thing costs over a grand!!!! I figure I’ll spend $100 or so and give it a shot.

Thanks all!

Devil…. “I figure I’ll spend $100 or so and give it a shot.” Metaphorically speaking I’m sure. Have fun! Let us know how it works out!

Actually, It looks VERY comfortable! Those of you who are so inclined (and over 18!!!) feel free to google “tantra chair”. Their website has a variety of “demonstration illustrations”.

I think it needs a safety harness for the little missy, I could drive that thing right into the wall.

I also googled and welll… for me personally, a bear rug and fireplace works or just clean sheets works fine for me… I think consecrating an entire room to a very large piece of contempory furniture specifically designed for tantric sex is okay for some- so long as you have an open minded cleaning lady.. or just a cleaning lady at all. I don’t know, but I must be getting old and sensible. What ever happened to pick up trucks and hay lofts and big rock by the falls? Okay- yep- I am definately old. But I was thirty once. Honest. I. was?
