I hope this is straight.
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.
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.
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.
I used more of the foam to create a bed for the blank. That way any rubber that ran off wouldn’t be wasted. I wanted to ensure the sides were built up properly.
There’s a few flaws here and there,but otherwise the surface texture is quite nice. I’ll touch up what I can with plasticine
Taking a break from pulling things apart. The outside foam came off alright, but the fibreglass mold bonded a little bit to the rubber. I had to let my muscles recharge.
