How to Make a Chair | Episode 6: DIY WOOD STEAMER

New Videos Every Week

This is the sixth episode of a series of videos I am making documenting the design and fabrication of a chair I am currently working on.

Episode 6: In this episode I take a trip to Lowes to pick up some things to make a homemade wood steamer from PVC pipe and a wallpaper remover. I also receive my first design patent for the chair in the mail.

I designed and fabricated the original Bow Spring Chair as part of a furniture making workshop at Harvard and MIT in 2014. I was interested in how the arms and legs of the chair could work in unison as a type of double bow spring structure – becoming extremely strong under direct loading, yet flexible and responsive to the shifting load of the user. The legs/arms of the chair are made from steam bent, glue laminated strips of ash, and the seat is made from glue laminated birch plywood. Throughout the semester I employed many different techniques of fabrication from hand files to CNC lathes.

This series of videos will look at how I develop the design further and attempt to get the chair to market.
