Plywood chair

Moving forward. It has no glue we will take it all a part and do a final reshape. The angle thing I'm doing is a bit confusing we are just staying confident that the idea is good. Not letting crooked way it looks screw us up is the key. It will be square when it's done the plywood grain will go in two different directions. I'm hooping the feel you get looking at it will be like a crooked room at an amusement park.

why didnt you just glue up all the wood and then carve it? Good to see being creative.

Thats going to be pretty cool. Are you changing wood direction with the wood thats missing? I had the same question as Joe about the glue up.

Hitting Screws

January 25 2012, 4:44 PM 

Hitting the screws with the saw are such a pain. I was not sure of the shape so I wanted to be able to do some re-dos if we needed. If it was a square glue up that may be easier.

Process

We need to add more wood yet that's all. The back is as wide as I want it. The front left side and leg will pretty much be smaller pieces because of the compound angle.

it will be easy

There are only a few screws in it now and we will number all the pieces. We will be able to cut more of the middle out of if to make it lighter too. I have some unique clamping ideas.

Screws are much harder than nails it trashes chains. I want to carve it with screws in the middle only and put it together tighter with the screws around the edges.

Not sure Joe

January 25 2012, 9:49 PM 

There will be 7 sheets of 3/4 plywood used maybe the total weight of 4 sheets? The screws add a lot too the big plywood chair I made had 25 screws per layer. I don't want these things to de-lam and fall apart in a hundred years I'll provably be to old to out them back together. Lol

By making it dry first we can cut out more wood that we don't need. We will have the shape real close to what I want when we are ready for glue.

With the tall back, you might want to leave the weight in the base for stability. imo
