Step 2: Materials

The requirements for the materials was
- Durable
- Cheap
- Limited materials

The wood needs to be durable and therefore a wood board with the thickness around 20mm was needed

I desided to use a woodboard that I had in the garage which made it cheap. My board were 120 cm x 80 cm x 2 cm
With this board I could make 2 chairs if I used it for the main parts

I found a additional board that I could use for the rest.
The board was around 50 cm x 100 cm x 2 cm

 

Step 3: Cutting

From the main part I cut 6 pieces that where 39,5 cm x 39,5 cm
The measurements was to ensure that I had enough board.

From the extra board I cut 2 pieces that were 39,5 cm x 37 cm
The 37 cm is because the base needs to be shorter than the sides (see later)

Step 4: Main Parts

The main part went into two sets of 
2 sides
1 back

The sides needed a bit of extra and I desided to Cut a "D" which is the inital letter of my girl's name.
The cutting is for decoration and for reducing the weight.

It is also important to add the holes to the sides and remember that the chair needs two heights

Step 5: Base

The assembly is done in the following order.
- Attach one side to the back
- Attach the other side to the back
- Attach the base to the sides

When attaching the base to the sides it important to remember that the chair should have two heights.
