I’ve been inspired by many chairs over the last week or so and spent far too much time in my head and on paper sketching ideas.  Last night I cut and assembled the chair I designed in six hours using 2 2x4x8’s and a 4 foot by 4 foot piece of 1/2″ plywood.  Here is some process documentation and some photos of the final project.  I was pleased with amount of time it took to cut and assemble but not so happy with the bulkiness and lack of personal expression in the piece.  It was a great exercise in making a functional and comfortable chair, which I have never attempted or done before and I’m excited for the next 7 weeks to fully design and explore my next chair.
