Introduction: Woven Steel Chair

This chair was inspired by the bent maple furniture of Frank Gehry back in the early 1990's.  I build it by bending strips of steel on a rolling mill, then MIG welded them together at the edges.  At each intersection, I drill a small hole with a drill then brazed bronze into the hole with an Oxy-Acetylene torch, to create a small detail.  It was made of 3 separate pieces that were then welded together to form the chair.  To finish the chair, I brushed it down with ScothBrite pads to give it a little texture, which from a distance, makes it look like fabric.  Then finally, I wax to the metal to keep it from rusting.  The dimensions are:  18w x 24d x 48h.
