Would that chair work with a 200 pound dude, too?
PS: Fantastic build, by the way.
Yes I'm siting on it right now. Another part of my tests, before selling patent
Chair Patent WP.21381
Loving this build, I've been following it in the cooler master competition .... Fantastic skills
your work is fantastic!
What a beautiful piece of craftmanship. Thank you for sharing the build with us.
Thank you guys !!!!!!
I'm very glad you like it. REALY
And thank you very much for the stars
Now it's the kind of dabbing. A little sanding here, and grinding there. Unfortunately (it takes time) this is necessary.
Amazing work!! Have some rep too
How much weight would it hold you reckon?
Too awesome. It looks like you need a really long sanding block to get some of the wobbles out.
I know it's the utmost wrong mental image but... this build is bursting with pie! Dude you live an artisan's wet dream
Thanks. And after final adjustments I think it will hold 150 kg on the narrow side - further from the leg. Now I can sit there ,but carefully, very carefully
You are right. There is still a lot to do.
Thank you very much
Effects of grinding. By the way, "I patented" a new grinding wheel for polishing and longitudinal grinding machine for this job
To be honest I've enough working in a dust mask for x hours a day.
And now biiig request for help. Color effect that I wanted to achieve - that is smoked oak, does not go as I would have liked to.
So I did some wood samples. Speak up on them.
1 - Oak waxed dark.
2 - Oak stained and waxed white
3 - Oak waxed white
4 - Oak stained white.
5 - Oak stained white and waxed dark.
My personal choice .. 5.
(and man do I love this build/log!)
I have been looking all threw this build and I must say I really like the lighter brown color it has now...
Out of the choices here I would go 1 or 5.
...i'm pretty sure it will look good no matter what
Such a wonderfull build! I am in total awe of your craftsmanship awadon!
for the wood, think it has to be 1 or 5
I am all in for number 1. Has the most "umpfh"
Hmm I'm going to go against the grain here (I'm so sorry for that) and say that I like the number 3 finish most. Your desk is a heavy piece of wood, very solid, but at the same time it's very organic. If you go for something too dark, then you could end up with a very imposing lump of dark brown, which IMO would be a waste of the wood. Having a nice light colour (similar to how the wood is now in it's unfinished state) I think would be utterly beautiful. You don't need anymore "oomph" as the design itself provides that, if you stained/waxed it dark I think it would lose a lot of it's appeal (to me at least). If it was dark, it would simply look out of place in so many rooms, yet a light tone would work brilliantly against almost any backdrop.
Oh and as a side note, after seeing the pictures taken a little further distance, this design is remarkably similar to a desk I had planned for next year rofl. I mean the shape is so similar (yours is wood mind so it's naturally slightly different proportion-wise) that I'm really quite taken aback, how's that for coincidence eh? Guess I'm going to have change everything up again now as you got there first by quite a margin
5 from me as well, with 3 coming as the close second.
It'd be 5 for me as well.
I'd like to see more options. There's a LOT of exposed edge/against the grain material, and it will stain very dark compared to the rest. A very light stain applied several times might work better.
-Kinda what Maki said.
