Progress on Chairs
There's been some movement on the chair project. I have used the CNC3020 to make joints, which makes a very neat joint and parts that are more or less interchangeable.
Both mortices and tenons are done with custom gcode programs. I have finished all the parts for the first (trial) chair and have glued it up.
The chair is pretty solid so far, the seat needs fixing now and some covering with fabric. Some foam is also needed as these won't be wooden seats, the thickness of the foam needs to be determined.
The seat blocks were originally going to be wooden, but with the 4 degree sides and three screw holes, I have decided to 3d print them.
They really are much neater and are very strong. Also, I get to do something else while they are being printed (I can probably print a chair set at a time if it'll fit on the print bed) and I can have almost any colour I want.
