I was thinking about making one but the video doesn’t help as much as the pictures but I finally made it!!

gtonya (author)ayesha2022013-07-24

Wow! please Send some photos, I would love to see it!
Hope the instructions info helped...

wow nice

The video is amazing, and the idea, brilliant. How are the resulting chairs in terms of comfort? And I have to mention, too, that I'm impressed with how clean everything is--usually, there's a lot of grease and such in the works of such beasts. Was it hard to clean up?

gtonya (author)suayres2013-07-22
the machine was only five years old so it wasn't so dirty, the parts that had some limescale I cleaned very easily, and the yellowed plastic and enamel is very easy to clean with polish paste :)

I follow!

Ian Fowler (author)2013-07-21

wow, bet it took longer to make the video than the chair...awesome

mauxer (author)2013-07-21

I like the idea it is a nice retro style chair, and mostly, i love the model she is so beatiful :)

sparkleponytx (author)2013-07-21

Wow!! Beautiful!! I love this repurpose idea.

Geli12 (author)2013-07-21

I am beyond amazed!

zeroaxe (author)2013-07-21

I dont know what I DIG more, the furniture....., or the video!!!!!

**coin flip**

porcupinemamma (author)2013-07-21

In- geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-nnnnnnnnnnn-ious!!!!!

Your video is exceptionally cool too :0)

askjerry (author)2013-07-21

What... you didn't use the electric motor to make a massage chair???

(Just giving you a hard time!)

Really great... and as a fellow YouTuber... the video alone is AWESOME!

Two thumbs up!

Great job. I love projects that repurpose and recycle. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, love the stopmotion, was it hard to undo the bolt holding the pully to the drum because I struggled. The drum with the pully attached makes the best fire pit.

Crtlego (author)2013-07-20

This is really impressive. I can't decide what I like more: the video, the graphics for the instructions, or the project itself!! Its all amazing.

gtonya (author)2013-07-19, my aunt, and a friend of mine, bought the same washing machine, at the same day, 5 years ago.. 6 months ago all three of them stopped working at the same day! isn't it amazing? like many electric products, the washing machine, probably, has it's expiring date.
I didn't want to throw it away...I decided to find out what is hiding under it's shell.

Mr. Noack (author)2013-07-19

Very impressive! The stop motion video was an added bonus! I wonder what you can make with a dryer.....

jamestan (author)2013-07-19

You make me wanna tear my washing machine apart right now! Great job gtonya!

knarrenheinz (author)2013-07-19

hahahaaha, what an impresive project! I like it a lot! and the animation was awesome! really nice!


alanballjr (author)2013-07-19

Looks so futuristic. I wish I would've seen this before I threw my washer and dryer out last year. I'll keep this in mind if I come across some abandoned ones though!

bcavaciuti (author)2013-07-19

pretty cool...very sci fi but i would advise that you don't have palin foam as it tends to rip and crumble then get bits everywhere. love the stop motion :) and that recycling with something like this.

ynze (author)2013-07-19

Coooooool! What gave you the idea for this project?

Dominic Bender (author)2013-07-19

Awesome project, thanks for sharing.

I cannot help but wonder, what took you longer - actually making the chairs or doing the video? :D

gtonya (author)Dominic Bender2013-07-19

hey, thanks:)

actually the video wasn't the hardest part. the design of the chairs was challanging because my goal was to make the design suitable for all kinds of washing machines.
and the instructions took me quite a long time..:)
