make a simple dining chair for furniture design
Hey architecture lovers! How are you guys today I hope you continue to be passionate about life and never give up keep fighting until time will stop you.
Woodworking is one of the jobs that many people like, but in this job, high skills and imagination are needed so that the results of the work will look interesting, so that is what makes us more passionate about being creative, that's just my opinion.
"Love your work then you will always feel happy with the results"
Today I will show to you the results of my work a few days ago that I made in my workshop, this chair is a request from my customer who ordered a dining table some time ago and this chair will be used for the table, for my shape and design make it yourself according to his request with the back legs slightly curved.
For the process of working on these four chairs, it took me 4 days and for the material I used asan wood, this wood is one type of hard wood and also durable and this wood also has beautiful fibers similar to teak wood.
In carrying out this project, of course, I did several stages and processes and techniques that were sequentially until the result was a result.
The first stage I did was to prepare the main material wood, here I used a board with a thickness of 4.5 cm which I will cut slightly curved for the back legs and for the front legs I just cut straight, to cut my back legs using a jigsaw machine after I have outlined the board with the mold that I prepared in advance.
For the height of the rear legs it is 95 cm and for the front legs it is 43 cm because it will be added to the thickness of the board for the top as thick as 2 cm so that the top height finally becomes 45 cm and for the backrest it has a height of 50 cm from the top of the chair, for the size of the seat width is 40 cm (to the side) and 45 cm (back) this is the ideal size for a dining table chair.
After everything was finished I cut it then I shaved it until it was all the same size and then I sanded it finely, after that I started to outline to make peg holes on each leg and then assemble it.
After that I prepared the wood to assemble the legs as much as 6 parts for each chair, then made a peg at each end which would later go into the hole in the leg, then I started assembling them one by one and I made sure that everything was precise by putting a ruler elbows on each of the wood that I assemble.
After I assembled everything, then I prepared a board for the top and also for the backrest, for the backboard I cut it with a slightly slender shape down to add a little style, to combine the top with the backrest I also made it by punching holes in the top board. Then I will make the backboard like a peg too, and likewise at the top between the two hind legs and the backrest I will also make with the peg technique.
Then after everything was finished then I started to enter the finishing process starting with closing the joints and nail marks until they were completely flat and no longer visible using putty, then after waiting for it to dry I sanded using sandpaper number 400 so the results were heartburn and flat in this process no need to pressing the sandpaper too hard, it only takes a little pressure, after that everything is done I start painting it using varnish paint with several repetitions until the results are maximum and shiny in the painting process there are things that must be very careful, namely when painting the brush must be directed according to the direction of the fiber wood for better results.
and that's a little explanation and how to make a chair this time I hope you like it and I'm sorry if my explanation is not understood I hope you can understand it through the pictures I have shown above and see you in the next post.....have a great day..♥️♥️♥️
