Progress on the Cockatoo Chairs
The cocatoo chair prototype from my blog post of 6/5
7/1/09 ... Frames welded and arms on ... more tomorrow
Sam is underway on the cockatoo chairs ... It's going well for him. He made a new jig to make the seats all the same and then we had to figure out how to make all the chairs the same. Once he had the main parts made, we took the prototype and built a frame under it, marking the locations of the various parts and correcting the asymmetries of the prototype by averaging distances of parts from vertical and from center. It seems like it worked well as they all look the same to me ... click the photos to enlarge them ...
