hi i'm jesse here. There are two projects in this
video, the first one is to make bar stool kind of chair. For that i'm using a wooden bar and gluing
that into the cardboard with some adjacent heavy duty glue. Rolling the cardboard. the wood i'm
using in the middle will help to keep it straight while we're sitting on it and each time i'm using
glue to secure it. Then using some sticky tapes to give extra strength. I made a roll with
an approximate diameter of 40 centimetre. Then i sat on it to check everything is
all right and it seemed to be quite okay.
Then i used a lot of strong tape to secure it. of course the chair needs a backrest. for that I
am attaching some wooden dowels into the cardboard because i can't do it with few cardboard
sheets, it needs a real support then I add a few more cardboard sheets on
both sides. the glue i'm using here is for the heavy duty and it's not just regular
glue sticks you get from the craft store. i want to use this chairs for at least a couple
of years so i'm trying to make it really strong. to attach the backboard piece into the
base piece i'm using some strong glue like a gorilla wood glue and i secured
it with quite a lot of heavy duty tape.
Then i attach the foam into the base as usual i'm using velvet fabric. the materials
used in this video are my own choice and you can have your own like a fire resistant ,water
resistant or leather fabric and there is nothing like you must use the same materials i use.
it's like whatever you can fit in your budget .here i'm gluing the fabric into the cardboard
then again i will be sewing it later so there is no chance that just separate and come out while
we sit on it. you need at least one meter fabric for one chair and i ve done two chairs with two
meter fabric and still there is some left over. i'm using a strong thread like upholstery thread
and a long needle for making a tufting effect. what i do is just tie the
thread tight in the back part. the unfinished seams will be sewn together later
and i'm using a ladder stitch method and it looks quite neat once we complete it.To complete the
design in the back part i divided it into four sections and use small pieces like this it's just
thin cardboard pieces covered with foam and fabric then i'm tying it to make
some tufting design like this here i'm attaching each piece with some
glue you need to use quite a lot of glue i mean some of the parts didn't match together
so i used a ladder stitch method to make it look more nice and clean.
I attached a piece of fabric
into the bottom part with glue and sewed it later. as i mentioned
earlier if it is necessary you can use a waterproof upholstery lining fabric in
the bottom part. the second diy is to make a table out of cardboard. i am using three
layers of thick cardboard in the middle and on top and bottom i will be using hardboard
pieces. i'm gluing all the sheets together. i'm using four wood bars to make a frame
which will be attached to the hardboard later .to attach all the pieces together
i am using angle brackets like this. You can find extendable table
legs like this in ikea or on ebay.
I found it on ebay i think
ikea has cheaper legs than other shops. i'm using marble effect contact paper i
found on ebay as i mentioned earlier the top part or top layer of the table is not
cardboard it is hard-board so it will give a quite nice and shiny appearance and here
go that was the last part of the video and i'll be using it as a breakfast table and chairs
in the kitchen area.
