Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Make Tamplate of Rim's Edge
Make template of rim's edge, it is very helpful with cutting steel profile.
Step 2: Cut and Weld Legs
I prepered 3 legs to my chair, angle between them is 120 degree. Draw path using templates and cut a shape. When your legs are well matched to rim, just weld them.
Step 3: Wheels
Now prepare wheels to welding. I had to improve them a little bit. When wheels are ready, just weld them to legs.
Step 4: Time for Air Compressor
I used compressor from old fridge. To connect compressor with rim use bolts with nuts. When everything is in place, weld second rim on top.
Step 5: Make a Little Hook
Make a little hook and weld it to the chair. Hook will help organize cables.
Step 6: Cut Circle From Wood
Now take some piece of wood to make a seat. Clean surface (I used belt sander) and draw a circle using beam compass. Cut circle and improve the edges. After that screw seat to chair.
Step 7: Paint and Done :)
When chair is assembled you can start paint . I painted only wooden circle (clear varnish). I not painted the other parts, because I like rusty style.
Now your chair is finished ready to use :)
I hope you enjoy.
