The Unfinished “Sculpted” Chair

The Direction: Form and Structure Study: Design and build a chair that will hold your weight.

The Inspiration: I modified the plans for a chaise lounge which used 4 x 4 lumber to create an oversized chair. The project was ambitious for I not only wanted to "sculpt" a chair from wood but to decorate it with carvings. Flaws in the assembly were remedied by drilling holes into the legs and then tapping and gluing wooden dowels into it and the chair was sanded. Alas, living in student apartments found me parting with my "Unfinished Sculpted Chair" in wood.

The Medium/Materials: (5) 4” x 4” x 10’ lumber, glue (wood glue, liquid nails, epoxy)
