Nice work.
Is that a grasshopper chair? How did you make it & what materials?

Hey Tom
I’m sorry I forgot the maker but I recall it was appraised for around $ 4800 and was a well know designer.
I made the bent wood runners from white oak laminated 3/16” strips and used a mdf form with 4 layers of 3/4 ” lined with pipe insulators and packing tape glued together with resin glue and clamped mdft in the form shaped like the original runners thanks for your comments. Be safe out there.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS
Jim

Hi a1Jim.

I’ve shifted from my previous hobby of welding and started doing some simple woodworking. I love the lines on this chair and I would love to learn to manipulate wood like that can you offer some sage advice

Hi
Once you have done one activity that takes skill like welding I’m sure you’ll do well in working. I suggest reading a lot of on line info like finewoodworking.com on line and many others to search the how to do’s of any particular type of project your interested in. If you have questions feel free to ask.

Hey WV
If you want to cut dove tails by hand check out Frank klausz I think they may have on version of his DVD called
Dovetail a drawer on you tube or if you want to buy that DVD it’s a good one .There are a number of examples on dovetails on Fiinewoodworking .com also. after that it’s making sure you have Sharpe chisels and practice practice practice.
If you need to know how to sharpen your chisels Finewoodworking.com has a few articles about sharpening . I like what is called scary sharp method and using a work sharp sharpening tool if you budget allows. Hope this helps

Your most welcome I love woodworking and I’ve learned from tons of, dvds,plus complete collections of Fine woodworking, Wood, American Woodworker, Woodsmith and Fine Home building plus 500 or 600 hundred woodworking books an there’s always good old Norm . Roy Underhill , David Marks and now all the great on line stuff from Charles Neil , the wood whisper , T.Chisel and so many others I can’t believe it. It’s a great time to get into wood working . I’m grateful for what I’ve learned and the people who have helped me including some great folks here on LJ. If I can pass it on I’m glad to share. I’m looking forward to see what kind of projects your up to soon.

That looks very similar to the chair I use in my living room, called a “Gravity Chair”, at least in shape. I can’t tell from the picture, but does it recline as a unit like the Gravity Chair does? And yes they’re expensive but not nearly as much as the $4800 pricetag you have on that thing.

Hi there Landand yacht
No this chair did not recline and the $4800 price tag was by a antique furniture appraiser the customer took the chair to,. not by me. Maybe you could post a photo of your chair at some point. Welcome to LJs
