After multiple discussions with “The Residences of the Residences” about their need for seating, a plan was divised. This frame from a back seat of a car was found on the property as well as a “heavy” steel pipe collar and a design was set forth. The springs were clipped off my Nick and Kinley. The structural welding and supports were then carried out by a team consisting of Scott and Nick. After dinner and lecture we continued into the wee hours of the night finishing what was to be a master piece. Nick cut metal straps for supports, Scott cut the three ergonomically designed wood braces and Kinley cut the redwood slats. Jason, Mike, and Trevor (?) (a SUU engineering student down for the weekend) helped with the final welding, placement of slats and overall enjoyment of working late into the night. The chair is a one of a kind and is quite comfy. You should come check it out!
These simple bifold doors are not as simple as they look. They consist of welded steel metal frames with Mono-Pan inserts. They pivot in the centers and are easily moved from one side to the other. Everyone has been spending hours working on these doors for the shop. From the building of the frames, deciding on how to hook them to the track, the logistics of the locking mechanism into the floor, and multiple handle designs have made it a tremendous group effort. Being led by our fearless leader Atsushi, this has been an on going effort since finishing the residences and will continue till all 6 door openings are filled.
