One Chair a Week Challenge
I think I need to start my own Chair Challenge (see link below for where I got my idea). Is anyone interested in doing this with me? My schedule so far:
Week 1 (ending May 13): Dimensional Lumber Only. No plywood. You can only use stock dimensional lumber found at places like Rona.
Week 2 (ending May 20): Sticks and Plywood. No boxes, both materials must be used.
Week 3 (ending May 27): Plywood Only.
Week 4 (ending June 3): Wood + Choose your own Material. You can pick one other material apart from wood. However, there must be wood in the chair.
Week 5 (ending June 10): Steel. You can use wood as well as an option, but steel must be used.
Week 6 (ending June 24, an extra week for hard work): Any material.
Week 7 (undecided): Mini pop-up show somewhere. Maybe a found space exhibit. We’ll see how the first 6 weeks go.
Basic rules: All chairs must be sit tested; design can be done at any time, but chairs must be done in order; any fasteners can be used as long as they do not become a major design element; maximum 1 week per chair (apart from last chair); and NO revisions.
Reply if you’re interested. Since weekly meet ups will be difficult, photos will have to do as proof.
