I used this 1 hour contest to challenge myself to see if I could actually make this chair in 1 hour and I did it and had 40 seconds remaining on my timer!! This is why I love Instructables it gives me ideas and fun contest to enter and maybe even win something along the journey!!
Supplies needed Approximately
2 2x4x8 i used the scraps I had left from the fence I just built
8 1/4x20 nuts
8 1 1/4 fender washers
1 10' stick of 1/4 in threaded rod
YEP THATS IT
Tools needed table saw, miter saw, angle grinder with cutting disk, router table with round over bit, tape measure, pencil, and drill with 3/8 drill bit
Step 1: Cut Material
Cut list and hole location
drilled at 1.5" and 25" centered on the Board
- 2- 42"
- 2- 29 1/4"
- 4-31 1/2"
drilled at 1.5" and 12" centered on the Board
Drilled at 1.25" and 1.25 inches on each end centered on the Board
Step 2: Cut the Rod to Length
I used my angle grinder with a cutting wheel to speed the process up. I cut mine at 25 inches but come time to tighten the nuts I regretted this and wished I would have taken more time to get close to the exact length because tightening the nuts took a lot of my time at the end
Step 3: Assembly Time.
This took a lot longer than I wanted it to I got real nervous I wasn't going to make the 1 hour mark.
Here is the order of the assembly
- 42 31.5 29 31.5 31.5 29 31.5 42 these connect at the top with the 1.5 hole
- 9 15 9 35 9 15 9 15 9 15 9 15 9 35 9 15 9
the 9s connect the 2 together make sure the 29s go under the 42 section
I got a rude looking drawing I made to make sure I stayed on track.
Step 4: Add Hardware
Add the 1/4 20 nuts with a washer on each end and make them tight! the wood will shrink over time depending on how wet the wood is.
Step 5: Grind Off the Treaded Rod
Cut the rod as close to the nut as possible and then use a file to knock down any sharp edges left.
Step 6: Finished
According to the timer I had 40 seconds remaining that included the introduction that I later changed.
hope you enjoyed this inscrutable. And hit the Heart and give me a Vote!!
