The 2×6 Arm Chair is selected for the annual recycled art show that is organized by the Re-Store every year.The chair will be on display and for sale for $200 during the show.
This blog post shows a couple of different ways to make a modern table from 2x4s.
I will be doing a demonstration on how to build a 2×4 chair at the Bellevue Arts Museum on Friday February 3rd 2012 from 3 till 6. This is a great opportunity to see the much-raved about George Nelson show and learn how to build your own chair. More information at: http://www.bellevuearts.org/
Here is a unique chance to get your hands on two 2×4 chairs. They will be part of the silent auction for the Kirkland Arc Center. Solid pine and stainless steel square drive screws. More information at their website: http://www.kirklandartscenter.org/
Introducing the 1×4 chair, the skinny version of the 2×4. It is light, elegant and strong. These chairs were commissioned specifically for a balcony. Because they are small, 4 chairs easily fit on the balcony and there is even room for a table.
“Restools” is a series of five different stools made out of recycled cedar and recycled pine. The cedar has a natural silvery green color and is sealed in so it brings out the contrast better and does not stain your pants when you sit on it. The stools are selected for the 2011 Re-Store Recycled Art Show.
Another project this winter was to refine the design of the chair and stools. The back of the chair always bother me a bit. I let go of the idea to be able to create these with simple tools and ripped the boards on the table saw under an angle. As a result it looks more like puzzle pieces coming together and the back of the chair as a board less.
Zac Cannon, high school teacher from Memphis TN, uses the 2×4 chair plans for the his class.
Zac teaches Precalculus and he is currently working on PBL (Project Based Learning) scenario for his class. This is part of the STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) initiative. The students need to be able to give all the missing measurements on the angular cut pieces from your 2X4 chair. They will use their trig skills and law of sines.
Zac found me via the Facebook page. I was excited to see this use of the plans. Maybe one day, when the school has the possibilities, the students can build the chairs and sell them as a fundraiser for the school.
The Slide Luck Pot Show is an organization dedicated to building and strengthening community through food and art. I attended some of the earlier events back in 2001 here in Seattle. Now they happen worldwide from Austin to Venezuela. What I personally liked a lot about how Casey organized the events, was that everyone participated, you either brought food or photos. This was the first fundraiser. It was an honor to have a 2×4 Chair as one of the auction items. More info about the SlideLuckPotShow on the website: http://www.slideluckpotshow.com/
