How to make a chair from scraps of floorboard

For a long time I tried to make something with my own hands. But as always there was not enough time, then patience, then simply there was no strength. And once at work I decided: "Blood from my nose, but I come home and start to do it." The first thing that came to mind was an ordinary kitchen chair. Especially in the basement were just in case trimmed floorboards. That came in handy! For a long time I could not decide on the size. He took the path of least resistance: he took a standard, factory chair and removed all sizes from it. So, you will need: • Actually the floorboards themselves; • Joiner's glue; • Metal corners - 4pcs; • Furniture screws - 4pcs; • A set of tools that everyone can find.

The first thing you should do is prepare the blanks for your future chair. In our case, first for the legs. Cut 6 boards of 43 cm each. We put them somewhere nearby so as not to lose sight of. For the lid we need 4 boards of 32 cm each. We also need 2 boards of 23 cm each - this is for better fastening the chair. To summarize: you should have got 6 * 43cm, 4 * 32cm and 2 * 23 cm. Is everything right? You can go further. The next step is very important, since it depends on it: how strong your chair will be. We will stick together our details. This is best done on the table. Let's start with the legs. As you noticed, our floorboard has a groove and a comb. We take one board with a groove for ourselves, coat the comb with wood glue, take the second, but only we smear the groove and insert it into each other. With the third, we repeat the same. With a hammer, align the boards along the length so that it does not happen that one of them protrudes.

Now this whole thing needs to be fixed in order to give our workpiece a hold. There are a lot of fixing methods, but we will analyze only two. If you have clamps or clamps in your home arsenal, then you are very lucky. And what to do to someone who simply does not have them. Here you have to be smart! Personally, I did everything very simply. He pressed one side against the wall, and nailed the wooden emphasis to the other, which did not allow our workpiece to move. As you can see, everything is very easy. With the other leg, do the same operations as described above and leave them in this position for about a day. Now go to the cover. We have four parts of 32 cm each. I had to cut one of them along to make a square 32cm * 32cm * 32cm * 32cm. Then it all sticks together again, equals and fixes in a motionless state until tomorrow. We repeat all the above with our last blank. That's it for today! So, you come home and see the result of your work:

It remains only to collect all this! To do this, drill 4 holes from the back of the lid. In these holes we will insert the legs. Accordingly, in the legs we make the same holes. Then we take the wooden nagel, smear them with glue and insert them into the holes on the legs. Now you can safely connect the legs with the lid. For better bonding, we fasten two corners on each side.

Next, we take the jumper or as it is called - the king, put it exactly in the middle of the lid. From the outside, we drill 4 holes and twist with furniture screws.

So we got a chair!
