All of this jigging to drill one hole. Sometimes, it’s the seemingly easy things that take the longest.
Chair #2, this time, with the proper mounts for the legs. Remember that jig? No? http://ryspot.tumblr.com/post/48712746320/the-view-of-the-screw-posts-for-the-chair Here it is in use.
Remember chair of the week? I was playing around with the concrete chair and trying to find a new home for it and this chair just seemed to fit. Maybe I’ll investigate this further…
It’s free! But I should have removed my oily gloves first… Whoops. It’s not perfect by any stretch, but it’s a chair shell and it’s concrete.
Putting the final lick on the concrete. I left out the screw posts to attach the base since this copy will most likely end up in “research folder”, aka, trash can.
I backed the rubber mold with plaster of paris. It’s a cheap way to ensure that the rubber mold sits properly when you’re casting concrete.
This was attempt #1 with the legs. It didn’t go so well. The slot I’d cut in the wood was a bit too small for the massive amount of metal. Nonetheless, it’s still a pretty strong leg even though it split. I’ll have to refine my process a bit!
Back to the industrial strength rubber. A thinner layer this time, maybe only 1cm thick. But it went well! It’s going to make a great concrete mold.
