Hello, dear readers and DIY!
I’m sure each of You want to have beautiful furnituremade with your own hands.
In this article, the authors YouTube channel “WOOD DESIGN” will tell You how to make a chaise lounge chair with curved wooden elements.
This project is fairly simple to manufacture, but will require a large number of clamps, and at least a circular saw. The other operation is possible to do more than simple tools.
— Beech Board
Sheet plywood, chipboard
Paz elastic (elastic band)
— Screws for wood, packaging film
— Linseed oil, lacquer, wood polyurethane adhesive.
The tools used by the author.
— Clamp, furniture stapler, gas burner
— A set of silicone tools for gluing
— Screwdriver, magnetic bits
— Lamella Frazier
— Manual milling, radius milling cutter with thrust bearing
— Miter saw
— Circular saw
— Technical fan, the electric nailer
— Chisels, hammer, mallet, spray, scissors, pliers
Grinding machine, surface gauge
— Ruler, pencil.
The process of making.
So, the master prepared a template on a sheet of plywood, mark on it the curved contours of future elements of the chair.
This template is placed on a sheet of chipboard, and along the inner lines are drilled through holes.
These steps are repeated based on the grounds for the future four parts.
Along the holes on the bases of repeated bending of the contours.
Several pre-prepared wooden bars the author puts mandrel, which will snuggle forming elements. These parts are bolted to the base with screws.
The main material for construction of the chair will serve as beech Board, which is dissolved by using a circular (or band) saw blade into strips of a thickness of 6 mm.
Then, both surfaces of the strips are sanded on a drum machine.
In order that the wood became pliable, and easily twisted, it should be wetted with water using a spray bottle in places of flexion.
The first will form the most complex sides of the chair.
Giving a little soaked lanes, the straight part of the package of strips is secured to the mandrel clamps.
Strip (one) warms up in the crease technical a Hairdryer.
Forming a first bend, all the bands recorded for him.
The same actions are performed and with the second, inner bend. It is important to periodically moisten the surface of the strips to prevent drying and cracking of the wood.
Recorded and blanks are left for two hours.
On the base around the mandrel is enclosed by a packing film, and you can begin bonding formed bands. When gluing polyurethane used carpenter’s glue.
This operation is easier to perform together, and for even leveling of the adhesive layer is convenient to use here such silicone tools.
All strips immediately after the leveling of the adhesive are added to the package.
Now all the bands are again locked on the mandrel, starting at one end of the package, periodically aligning them vertically.
The contraction bands need to ensure that between them was not formed the voids and pockets.
To reduce the likelihood of damage to the outer surfaces softened wood, under the pressure washer clamps it is recommended to enclose pieces of plywood.
After curing the adhesive, the workpiece is removed from the mandrel, the excess glue the speakers are cut with a chisel.
The sides of the parts must be carefully treated on the surface gauge. Although this procedure can be performed with hand tools.
The ends of the blanks are cut using the mitre saw. The sides folded between them, and they leave their mark centers of holes for the dowel flat.
The holes for the dowels are made with the help of the lamella of a router.
Incidentally, in a recent article it was told about the manufacture of special equipment for the conventional manual cutterdesigned specifically for such operations.
Return holes for dowels have been made in the ends of the jumpers.
Installing on a manual mill radius cutter with the thrust bearing, the wizard rounds out all the faces of the parts.
In the planting holes for the dowels is filled with a bit of polyurethane glue and a mallet hammered the dowels.
Then installed the crossbar.
To join a second lateral side with the dowels on the rails is difficult enough alone, you need help mate.
In the place of installation straps design cinch clamps.
The inner part of the chair, namely the frame for the seat and backrest, ready. All its surface is covered with linseed oil and polyurethane varnish. This will protect the wood from the negative effects of moisture.
By the way, is quite simple impregnation (oil, wax) for wood You can make by reading the recipeproposed by Vladimir Natynczyk. This treatment consists of only two components, namely, oil of rose and natural beeswax. For this reason, it can be safely used for the treatment of wooden articles in contact with foodstuffs. In addition, unlike flax, rosehip oil has no unpleasant odor.
Material for back and seat will serve as a pass elastic (elastic band). It will take about 80 meters.
The tape is cut into pieces slightly greater length than the width and the length of the frame. When measuring dlinyj bands, it is worth doing along the curved part of the frame.
Cut places a pass prizhivayutsya gas burner. This will prevent unraveling of the material.
Margin tape is needed to wrap it around the frame, and fixing on the reverse side.
First fixed furniture stapled ends of the transverse strips.
Before fixing the second end of the tape is pulled with pliers. Between the strips is a gap of 10 mm.
Now it is possible to interweave the longitudinal strips.
So, the seat is ready, it remains only to attach it to the sides of the two remaining parts, which serve as legs and armrests at the same time.
On the bottom of the legs should stick a felt or leather lining.
Here is a solid and beautiful chair chaise turned out.
I thank the author for an original and interesting design chairs-lounge chairs!
All good mood, sound health, and interesting ideas!
