Hello, dear readers and DIY!
Sometimes joinery craftsmen strive to maintain the minimalist style of furniture, while introducing elements of classical music. Such designs look very impressive and airy.
In this article, the author of the YouTube channel “Hassan Abu-Izmero” will tell You how to make a chair out of plywood with a back of leather.
This project is relatively simple to manufacture, despite used by the master of modern milling machine with numerical control (CNC).
— Leaf birch plywood, leather
— Screws for wood, furniture nails
— Titebond II glue, sandpaper
— Linseed oil, wax.
The tools used by the author.
— Screwdriver, drill bits for wood with countersink
— Orbital sander
— CNC milling machine
— Japanese saw
— Circular saw
— Ruler, square, knife, compasses, hammer, pliers, a plastic putty knife, pencil.
The process of making.
So, the author installs composite base of the machine table, and puts it on his smooth, but it is unnecessary sheet of plywood. It is needed in order that the drill didn’t damage aluminum profile table top.
The top sheet is laid out the working sheet of plywood with a thickness of 25 mm. From it in several passes, cut out two main parts of the future chair.
There is no particular difficulty to cut these parts using a regular hand router with template.
After milling the parts remain connected to main sheet jumpers. This is to ensure that they have not moved during the cut.
These jumpers cut with Japanese saws.
Both elements are connected by means of two cuts. This junction is located exactly in the center of the future round seat.
All edges and surfaces are sanded hand orbital machine and a sanding block. Also slightly rounded face.
The rod seat, the master could also do on the CNC machine, however, he decided to demonstrate one simple way.
Cut the round part on a circular saw as follows. First you need to prepare a square with sides slightly larger diameter disc of the future.
Then on the square you need to mark its center, having two diagonals.
Now the billet is screwed to the other Board through the center the following way.
Using the rip fence, over several sessions, the master cuts off the corners of square parts, slowly turning it before each pass.
These operations are repeated until then, until will remain very small protrusions that can cut smoothly rotating the part around its axis.
It remains to Unscrew the screw, and the drive is ready.
Before screwing the mounting screws, the author combines the diagonal lines on the disk supports.
Also drilled the pilot holes using drill bits for wood with countersink.
In the front section of the seat to measure a position of support underneath so that the screws went almost to the edge supports.
Sheet of skin is cut out a rectangular blank for the back.
One of the wide edges were not very smooth, and it had to be cut parallel to the first.
Also is marked with a circle, and cut pad on the seat.
The sides of the uprights using brass furniture clove, the master secures the leather edge of the back. To avoid hammer toes, hammering in the nails very short, he holds them with the pliers.
Actually, this cloves better to hammer with a plastic mallet to avoid damaging their hats.
The pad on the seat, it was decided to put on the glue Titebond II. Rethrownew it evenly over the surface using a plastic spatula, and put leather disk, the wizard presses his load to complete the bonding.
After the glue dries, the excess skin is cut flush with the edge of the plywood with a utility knife.
Then the edges are sanded fine sandpaper wrapped around a piece of foam.
The top face of the leather skin to be trimmed around the perimeter.
The author also burns its own branded block on the rear side of the rack.
Almost ready, it remains only to impregnate the wood surface with linseed oil for protection from moisture, and the manifestations of the wood texture.
Leather items treated with a special oil-wax. After some time, the excess impregnation are removed by cloth and leather surface can be polished with a felt tip. This will give them a glossy Shine.
Here is a beautiful chair in a minimalist style happened in the author. It is picked up in the shade of the skin to light birch plywood.
I thank the author for the interesting and simple design of the plywood chair with leather elements.
All good mood, sound health, and interesting ideas!
