This instructable describes a process of creating a WikiSeat.

The Mountain View Public Library issued a challenge to create a WikiSeat.
They provided a "catalyst" or metal structural support for a chair.
The challenge is to create a seat!

Step 1: Beginning

I began with researching WikiSeats on the internet, looking at what others had made.
Then I tried taping some scrap wood pieces to see how things worked.
I tried taping some tree branches but they were too big..
How to get the right angles for the bottoms of the legs?

Then I thought curly legs might be fun..
So more internet research on legs and 3 legged tables and other ideas..

Why not have a circular leg end and not worry about the angle?

<p>Very nice!!!</p>
<p>What cool little table! Does it feel sturdy in use?</p><p>Nice work on the 'ible too. I'd forgotten about The Catalyst... I see they sell them *and* a jig for making your own. Very cool.</p>
The table is sturdy enought but would not hold up as a seat because it is too tall and the wood for the legs is a bit thin. Thanks for the good words.
