Make a Bamboo Chair
Bamboo can be made of bamboo chair seat. Let's try to make the chair is a chair made of bamboo. Bamboo can we make a chair. The tools used are: wood saws, Parang, chisel, knife, drill, hammer, tape measure, pliers, brushes. Materials used are: Bamboo, rattan, nails, wood glue, varnish.
Model to be made quite simple with a blend of rattan windings. Backrest slats arranged longitudinally, while the blade holder arranged transversely supported retaining two bamboo sticks. Between the blade and the support together with rattan rope cross ties.
Creating a framework
To make the frame legs, prepare a 10 cm diameter bamboo. Make two pieces for the front legs each of length 55 cm. Then the two pieces for the rear legs each of length 75 cm.
To make the arm and the rod holder side, prepare bamboo for the center line of the inside of the foot skeleton or about 8 cm. Make 4 pieces each of length 60 cm.
To make the front and rear rod holder, the retaining arm, and leg boosters, prepare bamboo for the material side of the chair arm or cradle, 7-8 cm in diameter. Make five cuts, each 60 cm long.
Furthermore, combining the front and rear legs, arms and trunk side holder. The trick is to make a hole in each leg as much as 2 pieces each hole. Mounting holes 35 cm high, while the armhole 52 cm high. Making the hole should be at the end of the bamboo rod to be connected. Method of making a hole, first measure the diameter of the bamboo rod to be connected. Then make the holes according to size by using a chisel, then trimmed with a special knife hole punch. After all the hole is completed, his series of bamboo poles, thus obtained two series of legs, left and right.
After the second series finished legs, the two combined into one. While, as is the connecting rod holder, the retaining arm, and leg boosters. Number of connecting rod 5, each 60 cm long. Same way the process by assembling the leg side. First measure the diameter of the connecting rod, make a hole, and assemble it.
Creating a backrest
To make the rod back, prepare bamboo diameter of about 5 cm long 100 cm. Bamboo rod is sawed into two equal length pieces, each measuring 50 cm. Furthermore, each piece is made 7-mm groove width, or thickness of the back bar. Groove length 40 cm with a distance of 5 cm from both ends.
To make the blades back, prepare two pieces of bamboo about 8 cm in diameter, each of length 34 cm. Each bar split into eight blades, in order to obtain 16 of about 25 mm wide slats. Bamboo planks are polished on both sides, and its thickness is made uniform size 7 mm, or in accordance with the blade groove made.
Next, combine these blades with both rods back.
Creating a stand
To make the blade holder, prepare three bamboo poles about 7 cm in diameter each of length 40 cm. Cut the bamboo rod is the third to 8 blades each bar, thus obtained 24 blades with a width of about 20 mm. All the crushed blades of each side prolonged, and its thickness is made uniform measuring 6 mm.
To create a support bar, prepare a small bamboo stems 3-4 cm diameter 120 cm long. Cut the bamboo was widened two, each of length 60 cm. Planks are later coupled with the second crutch by crosslinking, using a rattan rope. Implementation of the coupling is done at the final stage of assembly.
Once the framework is set, at this stage be released first for the final assembled and reinforced joints. The next step, the circuit worked side foot first. After double-checked his position, each connection is given dipantek with wood glue and bamboo sticks. Next make a hole to put the buffer rod holder bar.
Merge back with trunk and rear seat backrest holder. How to create holes in both rods are suitable dengangaris middle backrest rods, then the four corners of backrest kr infiltrated in the holes.
Is all part of a raft of wood glued and reinforced with pantek. For variation and simultaneously strengthen the construction, between the front rod holder and rod reinforcing rods were unifying. This unifying rod may use a piece of bamboo along the 18 cm and a diameter of about 6 cm. The location of this unifying rod right in the middle of the second rod. Now it's time to install the blades of the stand. One by one the blades together on the second jib with rattan rope. Both ends of each blade is cut slanted and the riding position on both the rod holder.
After assembly is complete, now just give variety bamboo cover. Variations in the closing segment using bamboo planks that covered the meeting arranged bamboo circle. Installation of these blades using wood glue, then wrap as many as four rounds of rattan. The connection between the front legs and base embellished with loops of rattan. Coil attached to the bamboo with glue and nailed edges. The provision is not binding loops, depending on taste. All connections can be wrapped around rattan or only certain connections. The most recent was the seat coat the surface with varnish. Good luck,........... Regards success.
