Week one chair.
What a learning experience! I was definitely too busy this week to properly spend time on the chair, but I still arrived at a place that I’m happy with. Here’s some of the things I learned this week:
1. Repitition is your friend. If you can make a jig and just bust out pieces in a hurry, your life will be a lot easier.
2. Don’t be afraid to modify your design. The little stumps on the back became the back rest after my first two ideas didn’t pan out.
3. Try designs which you might not have faith in. Since I’m only spending a week per chair, if my design doesn’t work out in the end, I’ve only lost a week.
Overall, week one was a lot of fun. And I think the chair turned out pretty good considering it cost less than $10 and took under 4 hours to make.
