"arlo need a chair please!"
And if your daughter says arlo needs a chair, you best make sure arlo gets a chair!
Step 1: Requirements
- no nails or screws
- it needed to be glued
- smooth sanded
- painted or stained
My first port of call was a design, simple but strong, and no sharpe edges, I decided on a simple two sided piece with two inserts for the back and seat,
Step 2: Templets and Design
7 inch high
4 1/2 inch across
4 inch back
Obviously your teddy might be a different size so measure accordingly!
Step 3: Basic Cuts
Step 4: Fiddly Cuts
I have a scroll saw now and haven't really had much chance to play with it, I did a little test piece the other day to get my tensions right, but this is the first proper play,
Anyways drill a hole in the sides where the gap is, big enough to thread the blade and tension, then cut! Being the first play I wanted to test myself, so I decided to cut out arlos name in the back seat,
Step 5: Joints
I did this by cutting the seat and back 9mm bigger on both sides, then cutting out two notches on either side.
then lining them up with the main sides and marking where they would be, I cut squares for the notches to sit in.
Step 6: Sanding and Gluing
once it's all sanded, I test fit again just to be sure, then it's gluing time, I like to over kill on glue them mop up the mess lol, then clamp up for a few hours while it sets, light sand then ready for primer.
Step 7: Primer and Paint
Let everything dry fully, then we let little arlo rest his poor tired legs,
My daughter loves arlos chair, arlos been a part of the family since my daughter was born, she's had him by her side ever since,
Trouble is, arlo now needs a table apparently! :)
