sebastianvdm made it! (author)2017-01-26

I made it with 2 cm thick pallet wood, I want to leave it without a finish or maybe with linseed oil. The twisted cord with the stick was as a support so the back rest wouldn't snap and break while the glue was drying since the two back legs where too separated for it to fit right away.

That is amazing! Crude yet refined, I love it. Very well done!

Thats my Chair, out of 2cm thick larch wood. I just have to screw it together, sand the surface and finish it with a oil.

So, what does it look like after finishing. ?

Awsome chair!! Can't wait to make it myself :) but one thing i missed, how long are the front leggs in total?

MarkM407 (author)JustinOO2016-06-12

From the first picture, it looks like 45.5cm (10cm top, 4.5cm bottom, 45.5cm side). Hope that helps.

Bujholm (author)MarkM4072016-06-12

nah, 45.5 that's the length of the handles. the front legs look like three/quarters of the back legs, that would make them 70-ish. 69,375 cm to be exact. But I would say the important part is 37.5 cm at the bottom - the height of handles is entirely up to you, since that's that is applied to the top of the front legs. And the handles are screwed to the side of back legs, so sliding them up/down according to whatever length you choose for front is easy.

Nice mate i like it , would look even cooler with 5 coats of yacht varnish , just a thought .

Bujholm (author)2016-06-12

Very nice design. I will try to build myself one and reinforce it diagonally, since I am heavy and like to balance on back legs :) Ikea chairs last a year - we'll see about this one!
