    @stevinmarin i am hexing you, you no longer have a choice, you must make a full size version of this chair. if you don't, nothing will happen, if you do, good things will happen. so mote it be.

    @stevinmarin HEY! Where the hell did my pebble go? Did you snatch it while I wasn't looking? That was my last one damn it!

    @Goregoon Dude, if I could only snatch the pebble from your hand…oh wait…YES…I have pondered such a chair. After struggling with this project, I need a break from bevels and triangles. I have thought about the "real" version though. It would be an interesting challenge: mainly to make the joints sturdy enough to hold and actual human.

    Ever thought of challenging yourself to make a life sized, functional version? The mini turned out well. In theory, if you can make scaled version, the full size should be an obtainable goal. Reach for it young grasshopper, embrace it, be one with the forces that surrou….errrr… what the hell am I yammering on about… oh… never mind… LoL

    As one of your neighbors once said, "A man has to know his limitations" 😉 Being a mere mortal, your chair, w/ all of the angles and bevels would be beyond mine. Great job w/ the chair and your other vids. I'm looking forward to your next video.

    @stevinmarin
    Yes, it's an excellent book. I got lucky & found a copy cheap at a used book store. I recognized the photo you showed because I've spent a fair amount of time ogling it myself. I love your stuff, Steve. Keep up the good work. BTW, I'm going to buy a Kreg jig because of you. Thanks.

    Really cool chair Steve. Angles like that can be so hard sometimes, great that you stuck with it. I like how the grain matched up.

    @deezynar Thanks for posting the name of that book. (I returned it long ago!) Everyone should check it out: there is a plethora of great ideas in it. Sort of takes you through the design process.

    @jasonmusic1 I am convinced that you can set up a shop anywhere. I used to work on my apartment's roof! Stay with it dude! Chess pieces are always on my list…they are coming!

    The original aluminum chair was designed by Elizabeth Browning Jackson, of New York city. The book Steve got the photo from is "Designing Furniture" by Seth Stem, published by Taunton Press.
    It's an intriguing form & obviously a challenge to build in wood. Good job Steve. I doubt a full size version in wood would hold together unless it had some hidden steel reinforcing at the joints. It's more realistic than a Rietveld chair tho.

    There's something odd with the video. It keeps jumping about twice a second or so. There must be some frame rate or frame rate conversion issue with how this was processed.
