Hello, dear readers and DIY!
In this article, the author of the YouTube channel “Men’s Craft” will tell You how to make garden chair from an old pallet boards and leaky tubs.
— Pallet boards, old bath
— Screws for wood
Car putty, sandpaper
Aerosol primer, paint.
The tools used by the author.
— An angle grinder, diamond cutting and polishing flap discs
— Gas burner, metal brush
— Electric jigsaw
— Orbital sander
— Circular saw, clamps
— Screwdriver, drill bits for wood with countersink
— Claw hammer, square, tape measure, marker, spatula.
The process of making.
Thus, the main material for the body of the chair will serve as old pallets, top boards which are incised circular saw along the bars.
Separating the Board from the base, remove the nails.
Put several boards across them is applied to the strip of the same Board, it drilled a pilot hole drill bit with countersink. In the end each Board is secured to the crossmember on the two screws near its edges.
The total construction height is 650 mm. Mark a line at this distance from the edge of the first bar along it screwed second.
The surplus boards are cut along the edges of the crossbars.
The result is three wooden shield. And in the side walls of the cross member slightly offset from the edge.
All three components are connected in a U-shaped structure.
From the head of the bath is measured 850 mm, is marked with a line, and this part is cut off grinder.
Much better for this project will fit older acrylic tub.
All external and especially the internal parts are handled spade or “coral” zachistil drive.
Places with chipped enamel and dents on the inner surface of master seals automotive putty.
After it dries sanding is done with orbital manual machine.
Removing dust from the surface, inevitably remained after polishing, the author is presented with a layer of spray primer.
After the primer has dried, apply a layer of spray enamel. It is better to make two layers with intermediate sanding light sanding.
From scraps of boards is formed and sealed strut last, the front part of the chair given the curved profile of the bath.
Then, the layout of the circuit, and the excess wood is cut using a jigsaw.
The front panel is fastened with screws from the sides to the ends of the crossbars. Still a few screws to twist in the edges of the facade.
All of the outer surface is burned with a gas burner, and processed with a wire brush. This process is called stitching and it is intended to show wood texture, and to give it the aged look.
As a topcoat master strikes on the surface of the linseed oil.
Everything is ready, you can set the seat in the housing.
Of course, for such chairs need to sew the cover, and in cool weather is to use a pillow.
I thank the author for the idea of simple design garden chairs.
All good mood, sound health, and interesting ideas!
