Hello LJ’s! (sorry for my poor english, I’m Frenchy !)
I must made forty curved chair back to replace older in a restaurant. Here a pic of the chair
That’s a challenge cause they are curved on two different directions
I know a way to do that : I’ll make 2 molds (one male and one female), and I’ll glue three fine sheet of wood between them (like that I create a shaped plywood , and don’t have trouble with movement of wood).
I’ll make mould with chipboard.
My question is how can I made mold to match the exact (or mostly exact) shape of the chair back ?
An other way I’d thought, his to copy the shape with a “bath” of epoxy’s resin. I know how to use that, but it’s expensive … I’ll protect a chair back model and put it in the epoxy …
Is anyone have an idea / advice for me, please ??
