Part 5: The trunk seat

I wanted the chair to serve a purpose other than to sit on, so I designed it with a storage trunk in mind. 

I wanted it deep enough to store hobby stuff, tools, blankets, beer…… whatever I needed at the time.

 

 

I knew I wanted some ornate hinges to be a feature so i hunted around the internet and finally fund some that I liked.

Before I built the seat I boxed out the inside of the chair sing 9mm cladding.

The seat was cut from a 18mm sheet of ply.

Coming soon………part 6: The back rest.
